FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Sunny skies with highs pushing into the lower 90s

(WAFF) - We're starting this morning a few degrees warmer than average, in the upper 60s for the most part. It's going to be another hot day with temperatures warming quickly. Skies will be mostly sunny into the afternoon with highs pushing into the lower 90s.

More cloud cover will develop this afternoon, and a few isolated storms could pop up. Rain could be locally heavy, but it will be brief. Most storms will fade away as the sun sets. Temperatures will be slow to cool once again this evening. Lows should hold near 70° for Thursday morning.

We should see a bit more cloud cover for Thursday afternoon, and there will also be a higher chance for PM storms. Highs should be around 90. Look for a mix of sun and clouds Friday with scattered storms mainly in the afternoon. Highs will still be in the upper 80s, but we should be a little cooler over the weekend.

A cold front is set to move through the Valley and bring some temporary relief from the heat. The highest chance for us to pick up some much-needed rain will be Saturday and Sunday.

Highs will be limited to the low/mid-80s and lows should be in the low-to-mid 60s as we start the next week. Any scattered rain showers should wrap up Sunday, and we'll be dry for Monday and Tuesday. Highs should warm back into the 90s by the end of next week.
