FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Clear skies with temperatures into mid 60s

(WAFF) - We're starting this morning with mostly cloudy skies. Much of the area is dry with only an isolated shower expected through the early afternoon. The clouds will hang around most of this morning, but should begin clearing out during the afternoon hours.

Temperatures are warm this morning with readings generally in the mid 60s, or about 10° above average. Highs should push into the low/mid 80s with a southwest wind at 5-10 mph.

Skies should be mainly clear tonight and quiet weather is expected for much of Friday.  Lows should bottom out near 60° Friday morning with some upper 50s possible.

We should see a fair amount of sun Friday with clouds increasing late. Many will stay dry with the higher rain chances south and west of the Valley. Highs should be warm once again, making it into the mid 80s. Our weather gets more unsettled for the weekend as a cold front approaches.

Clouds will increase for Saturday and isolated storms could develop by the afternoon. While that activity shouldn't be too widespread at first rain chances will go up Saturday evening with showers/storms becoming more numerous for Sunday.

It will be a little cooler over the weekend with highs around 80° Saturday and in the upper 70s Sunday. Some storms may be strong with gusty winds, but the overall severe threat appears low with this system.

Lingering showers are possible Monday and Tuesday as several weak disturbances move overhead. We should be totally dry by the middle of next week.  Temperatures will be seasonable with highs staying in the 70s and lows dipping into the 50s.
