FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Highs should push into the mid-90s for Mond - WAFF-TV: News, Weather and Sports for Huntsville, AL

FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Highs should push into the mid-90s for Monday afternoon

(WAFF) -

We’re starting this morning warm and muggy with temperatures generally in the low-to-mid 70s. There could be a few foggy spots, but skies will be mainly clear otherwise. Any fog should be go 8 a.m. - 9 a.m. and skies will be mostly sunny this morning. 

Look for a quick warm-up with highs pushing into the mid-90s this afternoon. With the humidity factored in, those mid-90s should feel more like 98-103°.  Additional cloud cover will develop with time today, and isolated storms should pop up this afternoon. 

Storm coverage will be hit-or-miss in nature, but any storm that does form could be strong with significant lightning, heavy rain, and gusty winds. Storms should fade away this evening and skies will be mainly clear overnight. Lows will fall into the low/mid-70s once again.

Tuesday brings more of the same. Skies will be mostly sunny early with building cloud cover for the afternoon. Highs will push into the mid-90s as isolated afternoon storms develop. As we head into the middle of the week, a cold front should stall out near or just north of the Valley. 

This should lead to a period of more unsettled weather with higher rain chances late in the week. With the additional clouds, temperatures should also be a few degrees cooler. Highs from Wednesday into the weekend should be closer to 90°. 

Scattered storms are possible each day. The ongoing drought in the Valley didn’t change much last week, so we could certainly use the rainfall in most areas.
