Heat Index Values Continue to Climb

Feels like temperatures will be well into the 100s by the time next week arrives...

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — It was another hot, hazy, and humid afternoon across the Valley. Temperatures soared back into the low 90s, while we felt like the upper 90s in most areas. If you were lucky enough, you caught a passing shower to cool you down. The haziness still comes from the wildfires out of Canada and the western portion of the US, but the conditions should improve tomorrow and should be out of here by early next week. 

For the overnight tonight, temperatures will drop into the low 70s, and areas that saw rain today could see some patchy fog develop later in the overnight hours. Otherwise, a partly cloudy sky is to be expected.

Unfortunately, heat indices values are only going to keep climbing heading into the week ahead. By the time we make it into the late portion of next week, head index values could be reaching 105 and if that holds true, I wouldn't be surprised if a heat advisory became issued. Remember to drink plenty of water, limit your time outdoors, and check your backseat before exiting your vehicle.

This week, we won't be complaining about seeing rain. Rain chances look best tomorrow, Monday, and Tuesday. Chances will start to drop off once we reach the middle of next week and last through next weekend. Notice Friday's high temperature... 95 degrees is expected.

Stay cool and hydrated out there!
