FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Mostly sunny skies with highs approaching 90

(WAFF) - This morning is very similar to yesterday so we're starting out below average with temps in the mid/the upper 50s. If you need a light jacket, it won't be for very long as temperatures will shoot up quickly with mostly sunny skies.

We'll be into the mid-80s by lunchtime with highs approaching 90. Winds should be out of the east today at 5-10 mph. That wind should swing to more of a southeasterly direction on Friday, leading to a gradual increase in humidity.

Lows overnight should also be a few degrees warmer as a result. That being said, we'll still likely be a little below average Friday morning with lows in the low-to-mid 60s.

We'll be a bit warmer Friday afternoon with highs pushing into the 90s. You'll notice it will be muggier compared to today, but the humidity still won't be back to typical summer-time levels. It may be uncomfortable, but the heat index will only be a degree or two warmer than the actual temperature.

The same can be said for the weekend, but temps will be a few degrees warmer. Look for mid-90s Saturday and Sunday with mostly sunny skies. We may see an isolated shower pop up Sunday afternoon, but most will remain dry.

The 90s continue into the new work week, but we shouldn't be quite as hot as over the weekend. Each afternoon will feature a low chance for pop-up storms.  The rain chance looks like it will increase towards the middle/end of next week. Which is good news we could definitely use the rain in the Valley.
