Temps early this afternoon are already warming up to impressive levels.
But the "feels like" temps are even warmer.
Today is expected to be a scorcher of a day, with temps reaching the mid-90s and dewpoints well into the 70s. We could easily experience "feels like" temps above 100-degrees this afternoon. We do have just a slight chance, 30-percent, of seeing a shower or two to help cool things off.
Tonight, look for partly cloudy skies and lows into the mid-70s.
Friday could prove to be even hotter than today. Under partly sunny skies tomorrow, we are expecting highs in the mid to upper 90s and heat index values as high as 105-degrees..along with another 30-percent chance of showers.
A cold front is expected to move through Friday night, bringing us slightly cooler and drier air by the weekend. Our latest model run did indicate showers into south Alabama on Saturday—close enough to possibly kick some cloud cover our way. The clouds should be farther to the south by Sunday.
Our atmosphere will likely remain dry until midweek next week.
Have a nice Thursday!
