Welcome to July!

Today will be hot and humid with a few storms to track later this afternoon

Amanda: Monday afternoon forecast update

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - New month, same old heat and humidity, right? You got it. If anything, the first day of July will also be the beginning on a small warm up. Partly cloudy skies have helped carry temperatures into the middle 90s this afternoon, supporting heat index values of 100-105°.

It’s not overwhelmingly hot (record highs for this time of year are into the triple digits), but it still is a few degree above average for this time of year.

Thankfully, it’s not a completely dry forecast... isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will bubble up in that heat, providing briefly heavy downpours for some.

Coverage is not overwhelming, but there will be enough that pops to give most of you a reasonable chance at some relief.

The rest of the week through the 4th looks very similar: middle 90s for highs with heat index up to 105° at times.

Outside of a few storms, the workweek is rather quiet.
