First Alert Forecast: Even hotter weather is on the way!

  • First Alert Days are posted for the Midlands for Wednesday and 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.
  • Also, make sure you look before you lock! Don't leave your pets and children in the car during this dangerously hot weather.
  • A few thunderstorms are possible Wednesday PM.
  • Better opportunities for rain and storms arrive Thursday into the weekend.
  • High temperatures will fall into the mid 90s Friday.
  • Highs will be back in the upper 90s Saturday and Sunday.

More dangerous heat is on the way.

First, as we move through our Tuesday night, expect warm, muggy conditions. A stray shower or storm is possible early. Most areas will be dry though. Low temperatures will be in the mid 70s.

High pressure will continue to 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 Wednesday and Thursday.  But because of the humidity, it will likely feel between 105 and 110.  As a result, we have declared First Alert Days through Thursday.  Plan ahead! Take frequent breaks while outside.  Also, drink plenty of water and check up on your pets and your elderly neighbors.  Make sure you look before you lock!  Don't leave your pets and children behind in the car!

A few isolated to widely scattered showers and storms are possible Wednesday.  Slightly better opportunities for showers and storms are possible Thursday, Friday and Saturday. We could even see a few storms on your Sunday evening.

High temperatures will fall into the mid 90s by Friday. We'll be back in the upper 90s Saturday and Sunday.
