First Alert Forecast: summery heat, humidity this week
Summery Steam Cranks Up This Week (Source: WLBT)

We're starting off the work week on a hot & steamy note! Highs will be topping out in the low 90s this afternoon, but will feel more like 100°... A trend that will carry us through the end of June & into the start of July (mid-week). A few showers and thunderstorms will also be possible each afternoon/early evening, likely dissipating after sunset. 

An upper level low will allow for an increase in storm chances by the end of the week & we’ll remain unsettled even into Independence Day weekend! Expect a higher chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms throughout the second half of the 7-day forecast, including your 4th of July! This doesn’t mean we’ll see a washout for the holiday, but definitely keep the First Alert Wx App handy if you have any outdoor plans. Temperatures will be slightly cooler but still seasonable given the time of year.
