FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Storm chances to increase for Thursday afternoon

(WAFF) - Temperatures are generally a degree or two warmer than they were yesterday with readings ranging from the mid-60s to near 70. Skies are mostly cloudy and an isolated shower is possible. Most will stay dry this morning with higher storm chances developing for the afternoon.

We should see more cloud cover through the day compared to Wednesday. It's still going to be warm and muggy with highs into the upper 80s. Scattered storms will develop by the early/mid afternoon.

While those storms will be more widespread than yesterday, there will still be some that don't see any rain. Storms should diminish through the evening and most will be dry overnight. We'll stay warm, though, with lows dropping to near 70° once again.

We'll see a mix of sun and clouds on Friday. Scattered storms can be expected for the afternoon with highs around 90. Given the hit-or-miss nature of the storm activity, some will stay dry. Look for another warm, muggy night as we head into Saturday.

Highs will be in the mid-80s with mostly cloudy skies and scattered afternoon storms. The rain should become more widespread into Saturday night.  Much needed rain showers will be ongoing for much of the Valley by Sunday morning. The rain should taper off through the day with a fair amount of cloud cover remaining.

Sunday should be the coolest day of the upcoming week with highs limited to the lower 80s. Skies should be mostly sunny by Monday. It won't be as muggy, but we will start to warm back up. Highs should be in the mid-80s with lows in the low/mid-60s. Look for the upper 80s by Wednesday with the 90s returning later in the week.
