The combination of unseasonably hot temperatures and humid air will
create elevated heat index values of 100 to 105 degrees across much
of north Alabama late this afternoon into early this evening. A Heat
Advisory remains in effect for much of north Alabama through 9 PM
this evening.

Isolated to scattered thunderstorms also remain possible through the
afternoon hours before dissipating early this evening, mainly along
and east of Interstate 65. A couple of the stronger storms may be
capable of producing gusty winds and brief heavy downpours.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday...

Scattered to numerous thunderstorms are possible through the
remainder of the period, especially Friday and Saturday as a weak
frontal boundary settles into the area. Gusty winds and locally heavy
rainfall will be the primary threats with any storms. Localized
flooding may also be a concern for areas that see multiple storms.


Activation of storm spotters and emergency management personnel is
not anticipated at this time.
