FIRST ALERT WEATHER: High humidity with temperatures warming quickly

(WAFF) -

We’re starting this morning warm and muggy. Skies are mainly clear, but a few foggy spots aren’t out of the question given the high humidity. Temperatures should warm quickly today, and you can expect a similar afternoon compared to Sunday. 

We should be into the lower 90s around lunch time with highs pushing into the mid-90s. The heat index should range from 100-105° this afternoon. Isolated storms should develop by the early/mid afternoon.

Some of these storms could be on the stronger side with very heavy rain, gusty winds, and small hail. They’ll also provide a temporary cool-down for those caught under them. Any storms should fade as we head into the evening, and we should be dry overnight. Lows will only fall into the lower 70s once again.

We should see more cloud cover on Tuesday, and highs will likely be a few degrees cooler. We should also see more storms fire up during the afternoon compared to today. Wednesday will be similar so it’s during the middle of the week when you’ll have the highest chance of seeing storms. 

We should finish the work week on a hot note as a cold front approaches the Valley. Highs should be in the low-to-mid 90s Thursday and Friday with isolated afternoon storms possible both days. 

The cold front pushes though on Friday, and should knock the humidity down for the weekend. Highs will be in the upper 80s with lows falling into the low/mid-60s for a few nights. The 90s along with higher humidity look to return next week.
