Cloud cover that kept us warm this morning is finally beginning to break as the sun rises up across the Valley. Expect plenty of sunshine by this afternoon with a chance of a few isolated showers this afternoon. A brief heavy burst of rain along with gusty winds and lightning are expected with these few showers. The rest of us will be battling the heat and humid weather. High temperatures will climb into the mid 90's once more with the heat index ranging between 100 to 105.

Temps this Sunday have climbed into the Low to Mid 90s with a few scattered showers developing this afternoon. As is typical with summer thunderstorms, expect them to diminish as we head into the evening hours and lose the daytime heating helping to fuel them.

Temperatures over the next few days are expected to be the hottest of 2016. Although things may seem hot now, we've seen hotter summers in the past. During 2007, Huntsville was over 100 degrees for 9 straight days. Compare that to the 2 days of triple digits over the last 2 years. However, one thing that is impacting our temperatures now is the ongoing drought.
Throughout the day we'll see a partly sunny sky with temperatures bouncing back into the mid 90's. With humid air at the surface, the heat index will make it feel like it's near 102 to 103 this afternoon. Make sure to beat the heat! Stay cool and hydrated! Your body will not be able to cool off as the sweat it creates won't be able to evaporate into the air since it's so muggy out. Limit your time outside, especially during the afternoon.

Heading into Tuesday, a stalled out boundary to the North of the Valley will sink farther southward, allowing for a higher coverage of showers in the forecast for Wednesday afternoon-night. The coverage of thunderstorms will be more widespread where the percentage will be upped to 30-40% where heavy rain, frequent lightning, wind gusting between 20-40 mph is likely.
