/ISSUED 638 PM CDT TUE JUL 7 2015/

SUMMER WILL BECOME FIRMLY ENTRENCHED ACROSS CENTRAL ALABAMA THIS
WEEK...AS UPPER LEVEL RIDGING BRINGS INCREASED DAYTIME
TEMPERATURES AND HELPS SUPPRESS MOST DIURNAL CONVECTION. THE
FORECAST WILL BE FAIRLY STRAIGHTFORWARD THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF
THE WEEK AND INTO THE WEEKEND...WITH BELOW NORMAL POPS AND ABOVE
NORMAL TEMPS. LONGER RANGE MODELS CONTINUE TO SHOW THE UPPER RIDGE
MOVING SUFFICIENTLY WESTWARD BY EARLY NEXT WEEK TO ALLOW NORTHWEST
FLOW TO RETURN TO OUR AREA AS HEIGHTS BACK OFF.
