First Alert Forecast: If you think it's hot now, just wait!

  • First Alert Days are posted for the Midlands from Tuesday through Thursday.
  • High temperatures will be in the upper 90s and lower 100s.
  • However, the humidity will make it feel between 105 and 110.
  • Make sure you take frequent breaks, drink plenty of water and check on your pets and elderly neighbors.
  • A stray shower or storm is possible Tuesday afternoon.
  • Better opportunities for rain and storms arrive Wednesday PM through Saturday.
  • High temperatures will fall into the mid 90s Friday and Saturday.

If you think it's hot now, you haven't seen anything yet.

First, as we move through our Monday night, expect warm, muggy conditions. Most areas should be dry. Low temperatures will be in the mid 70s.

High pressure will control our weather in a big way over the next few ways, giving way to some dangerous heat.  We'll see highs in the upper 90s and lower 100s.  But because of the humidity, it will likely feel between 105 and 110.  As a result, we have declared First Alert Days Tuesday through Thursday.  Plan ahead! Take frequent breaks while outside.  Also, drink plenty of water and check up on your pets and your elderly neighbors.

While a stray shower or storm is possible Tuesday afternoon, slightly better opportunities for rain and storms will arrive late Wednesday afternoon through Saturday.

High temperatures will fall into the mid 90s by Friday and Saturday.
