FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Highs topping out in the lower 90s with increasing humidity

(WAFF) -

It’s not quite as cool this morning, and temperatures are ranging from the mid-60s into the lower 70s. High, thin clouds will drift into the Valley from the north over the course of this morning. Temperatures should still warm quickly and we’ll be into the mid/the upper 80s by lunchtime. 

Highs will top out in the lower 90s this afternoon with a west wind at 5-10 mph. The humidity will be increasing as well, and the heat index should be a couple degrees hotter than the actual temperature today. 

A few isolated storms may develop this afternoon with better chances missing the Valley in favor of Middle TN.  Any storms should fade away this evening and we’ll see mainly clear skies overnight. 

Temperatures should stay in the 70s overnight, and you can expect more warm, muggy nights as we finish out this week. Highs will be in the low-to-mid 90s for the rest of the work week. We should be staying dry on Wednesday with mostly sunny skies. 

Isolated storms are possible Thursday and Friday, but any rain should be hit-or-miss in nature. Our rain chance bumps up slightly as we head towards the weekend. Even on Saturday when the chance is highest, the rain does not look like it would be very widespread. 

Still, the clouds should keep temperatures a few degrees cooler than during the work week. Look for highs to continue to run in the 90s into next week. The low storm chance continues as well.
