FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Mostly sunny skies with highs into the mid 80s

(WAFF) - Once again, temperatures are mild this morning and readings are within a few degrees of where they were yesterday morning. Most of you will start the day in the mid 50s to lower 60s. Look for a quick warm-up with mostly sunny skies so a jacket won't be necessary for very long.

We should be up to around 80° by the lunch hour with highs into the mid 80s.  Winds should be out of the southwest today around 10 mph. Clouds will increase this afternoon and a stray rain shower isn't totally out of the question, but many will remain dry.

We'll cool off slowly this evening, and temperatures will stay in the 70s until around 9-10 p.m.  Lows should bottom out in the lower 60s. A powerful storm system will take shape across the central Plains today.

Strong and severe storms will develop well to our west by this evening. Clouds will be increasing locally on Wednesday as what's left of those storms will likely track towards north Alabama and southern Tennessee as we go into the afternoon hours.

While those storms won't be as intense, we will continue to monitor the timing and strength of the storms as of right now we are not expecting organized severe weather.  A few stronger storms with gusty winds are possible.

More scattered storms can be expected Thursday, but again, the threat for severe weather is low. We'll likely see a break from steady rain on Friday and Saturday with only isolated showers.

Highs will continue to run in the 80s into the weekend. Another round of stormy weather is possible Sunday afternoon, and some of those storms could be on the stronger side. Keep checking back for updates on our storm chances.
