FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Mostly sunny skies with higher humidity

(WAFF) - With higher humidity, temperatures are several degrees warmer across the Valley compared to yesterday morning. We're starting this morning in the low/mid-70s for the most part, although there could be a few spots that do dip into the upper 60s briefly.

We'll warm up quickly with mostly sunny skies. Temperatures will push to near 90° by Noon with highs in the low-to-mid 90s. It will be feeling more like the upper 90s by the middle of the afternoon.

Make sure you're staying hydrated if you'll be out working in the heat try to take some breaks in the shade or AC if possible. It's unlikely we'll see any storms develop this afternoon, but you will see more clouds around compared to this morning.  Skies will stay clear tonight, but it will be another warm one with lows in the lower 70s.

The warm and muggy weather will continue through the end of this week. Highs through Friday will push close to the mid-90s with a heat index around 100° each afternoon. Isolated storms could develop with the afternoon heat, but any storms will remain hit-or-miss in nature.

The weekend should bring more of the same although highs may end up a couple degrees cooler. Afternoon storms will be possible, but any rain won't be too widespread and many will stay dry. The chance for more widespread and much-needed rain looks like it will be increasing as we start the new work week.

Scattered showers and storms are in the forecast for the early part of the week. The extra clouds should also help keep temperatures slightly cooler than over the weekend.  Look for highs near 90° with lows in the upper 60s and lower 70s.
