A Heat Advisory remains in effect for our area through 7:00 p.m. this evening. The heat index (the "feels like" temperature) could spike to 112 during the peak heating of the day today! Prolonged exposure to these brutal conditions can increase your risk of a heat related illness, such as heat exhaustion, cramps and heat stroke. So, take it easy and stay hydrated if you must spend any amount of time outside.

The culprit for all this wet weather is a front, and it should stall out somewhere close to the coast Thursday. This will actually be a treat for the northern zones of our viewing area (Washington, Clarke, Monroe, Conecuh) because it would allow those counties a couple of dry days with lower humidity. We'll see a greater chance of unsettled weather close to where this front stalls, so areas south of I-10 to the beach will stand the best chance of a continuation of showers into the weekend.
