How hot will it be today? Heat advisories continue for Alabama

More above-average temperatures are forecast for Alabama today, and heat advisories will be in effect for most of the state.

Air temperatures are expected to climb into the mid to high 90s statewide today, and those readings combined with high humidity will make it feel even hotter outside.

Here are the high temperatures forecast for today:

Tuesday High Forecast

Here are the high temperatures expected for Tuesday.

Typical high temperatures in Alabama for this time of year are in the 80s to 90s, according to data from the National Weather Service.

The heat index, or temperatures that “feel like,” are expected to rise even higher, from 105 to 110 degrees, in most of the state today, according to the weather service.

There won’t be much relief at night either, with lows only hitting the 70s.

Why is it so hot? The blame lies with a high-pressure bubble that is anchored over the region and is bringing warm weather to a large area of ​​the US, according to the weather service. That high level is expected to help keep temperatures elevated during the work week.

There will be a slightly better chance for a shower or storm today. NOAA’s Storm Prediction Center has added a Level 1 of 5 risk of severe weather for parts of eastern Alabama for today, meaning isolated severe storms are possible:
