A chilly start, sunny and 75 this afternoon

Posted: Updated:

Good Monday.  After a chilly morning with temps in the 30s, we are in store for quite a warm up.

The average high for this time of year is 69.  We will be well above that through the week.

This afternoon the high will reach about 75 under sunny skies.

Some clouds move in tonight, and the low will be much more mild with the low dropping into the low 50s.

We will get even warmer Tuesday with a high of 80.  Skies will be mostly cloudy Tuesday as a weak front dies out over the area.  It could bring us a sprinkle or two, but the chance is only 20%.

After a dry day Wednesday, we will get another shot of rain Thursday into Friday with a cold front.  We could see a few showers late Thursday, but the best chance for showers and even some storms will be Friday.

The weekend looks good.  We will cool down a bit behind the front.  Highs will fall into the mid 60s, and we will be sunny Saturday.  Models differ a bit on Sunday.  Some show rain, others dry.  Right now I am leaning toward scattered showers Sunday, but have little confidence in Sunday's forecast right now.

    It's all about the heat and humidity. There is even a HEAT ADVISORY for northeast Alabama for this afternoon and Saturday afternoon.More

    Hold on. The heat and humidity are going to continue through the weekend. Today, look for a high of 95 and a heat index near 100. We won't see the same coverage of storms that we saw last night, but with this much heat and humidity in place you never want to completely rule out one or two storms breaking through.More
