Heat and humidity are making a comeback

Posted: Updated:

 (WRCB) - Good Monday.  It was nice while it lasted, but the heat and humidity are back.

Highs today will reach the low 90s under mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies.  The heat index will range from 95 to 98.  We may see one or two showers over the Blue Ridge, but most folks will not see a drop of rain.

We will see the same pattern Tuesday with high pressure keeping the rain away, and keeping the heat and humidity flowing.  Again, the high will reach 92.  Tuesday afternoon will get a little breezy with winds from the southwest at 10-20 mph.  

These winds will blow ahead of a front that will also bring scattered showers and possibly some strong storms to the area Wednesday afternoon into Wednesday evening.  The high will only be able to climb to about 86 Wednesday with the clouds and rain.

Thursday, we may see a few showers lingering into the morning hours, but we will rapidly clear out Thursday, and overall, it should be a nice day with highs in the mid 80s, and slightly lower humidity.

We will climb right back into the low 90s Friday, and stay there through the weekend.

We may also see some showers and storms on Sunday.

    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
