The hottest weather of the year so far moves into the state tomorrow and will stretch across a couple of days. Forecasters say to expect the upper 90s on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday with a heat index around 105. National Weather Service meteorologist Aaron Gleason says a giant area of high pressure over the Eastern Atlantic will inhibit thunderstorm formation, allowing temperatures to rise up to around 100. Residents are warned to take the usual precautions when working outside; stay hydrated, apply sunscreen, wear loose-fitting and bright-colored clothing and take plenty of breaks.
Three Abortion Clinics
Three of Alabama's five abortion clinics remain open after complying with a new state law that sets stricter building requirements. The law was passed by the Legislature last year and it goes into effect Tuesday. The Alabama Department of Public Health says clinics in Tuscaloosa, Montgomery and Mobile have worked to comply with the law's requirements for wider halls and doors and improved fire safety measures. A clinic in Huntsville closed Friday because it couldn't meet the requirements. But it is planning to move to a new location and get a new license.
