Two days in a row - Thursday and Friday - Huntsville International Airport warmed to around 90 degrees. We are going to add to that and bring some warmer 90s into the Tennessee Valley through Monday. The return of rain will tame the intense heat beginning Tuesday.

Saturday will warm to around 93 degrees in the afternoon after starting the day around 65 degrees in the morning. The record for the date of 92 degrees could fall. Sunday will warm from 66 degrees in the morning to 93 degrees in the afternoon. That record of 94 degrees may be safe, but we will be close to it. The heat index on both afternoons will be within about 5 degrees of the actual temperatures.

Temperatures this evening will drop slowly through the 80s and 70s. For your Saturday, expect 65 degrees around 6 AM. We will warm to near 76 degrees by 9 AM and then to 87 degrees around noon. By 3 PM, we will be near 90 degrees and still warming. By 6 PM, the hottest part of the day will be over, and our temperatures will drop to around 88 degrees.
