FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Sun and cloud mix with temps into lower 90s

(WAFF) - We're starting this morning muggy and several degrees warmer than we did yesterday, but a break from the humidity is on the way. We'll see a mix of sun and clouds today with a fair amount of sunshine early. That will lead to a quick warm-up with highs into the lower 90s.

The heat index should top out near 100° by the early afternoon. A cold front will push through the Valley over the course of the day. That will lead to northerly winds increasing to around 10 mph gusts to 20 mph are possible.

Isolated storms are possible along the front as it moves through the area. Any storms should end by the late afternoon as the front pushes into central AL.  With lower humidity overnight, look for lows to bottom out in the upper 60s.

We'll see mostly sunny skies for Saturday. Temperatures will still warm quickly and highs should make it into the upper 80s. But, unlike the last few days, it won't feel as uncomfortable since the humidity is staying lower. Lows should fall into the mid-60s over the weekend.

Sunday will be similar to Saturday so the weather won't interfere with any outdoor plans you may have for Father's Day. The heat and humidity will start to build as we begin the next work week. Highs Monday and Tuesday should be into the lower 90s.

Another weather maker will approach the Valley towards the middle of next week. At this point, Wednesday is looking like the best opportunity of seeing our next round of more widespread rain into the Valley. That may also lead to another dip in the humidity to finish next week. Look for highs in the upper 80s with lows in the mid/upper 60s.
