Vernon: Hurricane Hunters & hot temperatures

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Today can be summed up in two words; beautiful and spicy! Sunny skies helped temperatures climb into the upper 80s to low 90s this afternoon. Our normal high for this time of year is 85 degrees. We'll continue with above average temperatures for the remainder of the week and through the weekend.

Thursday will feature mostly sunny skies with a small chance of an isolated shower during the afternoon. Odds are many of you will not see rain but due to heating through the day we cannot rule out a rouge afternoon shower. Hopefully the rain will stay away because there's a lot going on tomorrow.

The NOAA Hurricane Hunters continue Hurricane Preparedness Tour making a pit-stop at the Montgomery Regional Airport. Area schools will be visiting through the morning and then the general public will have the opportunity to attend this free event between 2 - 5 p.m. Stormtracker12 will also be at this event.

WSFA is also having its on tour. In preparation of hurricane season, which begins June 1st, the WSFA Weather Radio Programming Tour begins in Troy. Between 3 - 7 p.m. you can go to the Walgreens at 100 Elba Highway and get your weather radio properly programmed by the WSFA First Alert Weather Team. You can also buy new weather radios during this event.

Temperatures will continue to rise as we close out the workweek Friday. Highs will reach the low 90s for most as we keep a small rain chance during the afternoon just in case.

Mother's Day weekend is looking beautiful just like mom! Saturday and Mother's Day Sunday will feature sunny skies and highs in the low to mid  90s. After the weekend rain looks to have a greater impact on our weather. Scattered showers and a few storms look likely Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon.
