You can expect temperatures to warm quickly this morning under mostly sunny skies. We should be into the upper 80s by lunchtime with a light southerly wind. Look for highs to push into the low-to-mid 90s this afternoon. With higher humidity, it will be feeling more like mid/upper 90s.
Isolated showers should develop as we head into the afternoon. The best odds of seeing some rain today would come east of I-65, but even there, many will remain dry.
Any showers/storms should fade away by the early evening with mainly clear skies tonight. Lows will be in the lower 70s once again as we start your Thursday.
Our weather pattern should remain fairly consistent into the weekend, and you can expect typical summer-time weather for the Valley. Highs will push into the low/mid 90s each afternoon with isolated storms firing up during the heat of the day. Those storms remain hit-or-miss in nature and will fade as the sun sets. Skies should clear overnight with lows in the lower 70s.
All eyes will soon be on the Tropics as we are seeing new development day by day. Right now we are focused on a tropical wave that is moving towards the Caribbean and will likely impact parts of the Bahamas and south Florida with heavy rain and gusty winds over the weekend.
There is some forecast guidance that moves this wave into the Gulf of Mexico early next week as a named storm, but the eventual track is still far from certain. We are closely monitoring this potential and will keep you updated with each and every forecast.
