FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Mostly Sunny skies with temperatures in the upper 80s

(WAFF) - Isolated showers and storms are possible this morning, and there could be a few foggy spots as well. Thus far, fog has not been too widespread. But, isolated pockets of dense fog are possible especially if you saw heavy rain yesterday.

It is another muggy morning, and temperatures are in the lower 70s for the most part. You'll see a fair amount of cloud cover this morning, but we'll warm up quickly despite the clouds. By the lunch hour, we should be into the upper 80s with any rain south of the Tennessee River.

Skies will become mostly sunny across the Valley this afternoon with the storm threat shifting southward into central AL. Highs should top out in the lower 90s with a north wind increasing to around 10 mph. That northerly breeze brings in some drier air, and you should notice a drop in humidity by Wednesday.

We'll start the morning in the upper 60s with afternoon highs staying in the upper 80s. It will still be warm, but there won't be any sort of heat index. Overnight lows should be the coolest of the week heading into Thursday morning. Low-to-mid 60s can be expected, but some of our sheltered Valleys in northeastern AL may be able to briefly dip into the upper 50s.

Look for the heat/humidity to return as we head into the holiday weekend. Highs should be into the lower 90s Thu-Sat with isolated afternoon storms possible each day. At this point, our weather is looking more unsettled for Sunday and the Fourth of July itself meaning there's a higher chance for rain.
