As we kick off the month of July, we have some very summer-like weather in store: warm and muggy with nearly daily rain chances.
Humidity drops even more on Monday and Tuesday with dew points dropping into the upper 50s to 60 with highs in the low to mid 80s. Most of the storms should not be severe, but some hail and gusty winds can are expected with a few stronger storms.
We will keep the chance of showers and thunderstorms in the forecast all the way through the weekend. Some of the storms could be severe. Tuesday and Wednesday, there may be lower chances for showers and thunderstorms in West Alabama as much of the moisture moves east. New precipitation amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms. Less than a tenth of an inch of rain is expected, and tonight's low will be around 68. Thursday night will be mostly cloudy with a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms. A southwest wind is the popular direction of choice this time of year, which brings in cooler and more stable air off the ocean. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 81.
Sunday: Partly sunny, then gradually becoming sunny, with a high near 83.
Sunny to partly cloudy, hot but not as humid. Sunday will be sunny, with highs around 82. Winds S 15-30 miles per hour.
Wed: High: 93 Low: 70 Mostly sunny to partly cloudy. Isolated afternoon thunderstorms are likely as the next system crosses through the area.
The rain will gradually taper down tonight, but there will still be a few lingering showers around during the evening hours.

Shower chances decrease on Sunday, but the start of the work week will see afternoon pop-up showers return to the forecast.
