Get ready for a humid weekend in Alabama as “humidity levels will stay high, and temperatures will peak in the 88-92 degree range. Just what you expect in July,” said James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist.

Risk Areas

Be sure to stay weather aware as there is the potential for severe weather Saturday and Sunday. The Storm Prediction Center has a good portion of Alabama under a “Marginal Risk” of severe storms for Saturday and a “Slight Risk” for Sunday.

The risk for Saturday will be for “areas generally along and north of Interstate 20” and Sunday will be for “all of Central Alabama,” said the National Weather Service in Birmingham.

Weekend Timing

Currently, the thought is for the timing of the possibility of severe weather will take place Saturday from 2 p.m. until 8 p.m. and Sunday in the afternoon into the evening. The timing could change as weather conditions are updated.

Severe Weather Threats

The main concern will be damaging winds up to 60 mph and quarter-size hail.

Also, Spann said that for everyone to “understand the weekend won't be a total wash-out, but occasional showers and storms are likely, and watch radar trends if you have an outdoors event planned.”
