HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Good morning! Here is a look at what's going on today:

Another sunny day today, but for how long?

Temperatures in the low-to-mid 70s will be common across the Valley this morning

We'll see a mix of sun and clouds today with more cloud cover for the afternoon. Scattered storms should develop, but as has been the case the last couple of days, not everyone sees rain due to the hit-or-miss nature of the storms. 

Highs will climb into the mid 90s with a heat index around 100. Winds will be out of the southwest around 10 mph. 

A few showers are possible overnight as the remnants of tropical storm Bill passes to our north.

Charleston shooting suspect expected in court today.

The Columbia area man accused of shooting and killing nine people in a downtown Charleston church on Wednesday night is now back in the Lowcountry after being arrested in North Carolina. He is scheduled for a bond hearing Friday afternoon.

At about 6:15 p.m., Dylann Roof boarded a plane accompanied by law enforcement officials in Shelby, N.C. at Cleveland County Regional Airport. Nearly one hour later, the 21-year-old man arrived in Charleston and is being detained at the Al Cannon Detention Center.

During a quick first appearance in a Cleveland County, NC courthouse, Dylann Storm Roof chose not to fight extradition and then began the trip back to a city and state that is still in shock after what police call a hate crime took place at one of the oldest black churches in the South.

Law enforcement took the 21-year-old into into custody in Shelby, NC on Thursday morning during a traffic stop. Shelby, which is west of Charlotte, is approximately 245 miles from the shooting scene.

According to a police source in Charlotte, Roof made a stop in Charlotte before he was caught saying he "was here in Charlotte at one point because they got him using his credit card,"
