Highs in the upper 80s for Tuesday

Some thin cloud cover is making for a warmer morning than we’ve seen recently. Temperatures are holding close to 70° save for cooler readings over northeastern AL. We’ll warm up quickly this morning with a mix of sun and clouds. We should be into the lower 80s by noon with highs in the upper 80s. Not only is that about 15° warmer than average for this time of year, today’s highs will be at near-record levels.
