Data now suggests a cold front on Tuesday pushing southward towards the Gulf Coast and staying there through Friday. That will mean drier and much more comfortable air would settle in and put an end to the extreme heat. I hope this trend continues with data showing this upcoming change in air mass. I feel pretty good about it happening since all models indicate this shift.
Areas north of I-20 will notice a change to the air on Tuesday and by Wednesday, all of central Alabama will feel more comfort. Not only will daytime highs be lower but also overnight lows will be too. Temperatures will be running about 10 degrees cooler on both ends. I lowered rain chances to account for the change in the position of the cold front.
Keeping fingers crossed!!!
