(WALA) - We saw more record temperatures again on this Friday. As of 3 p.m., both Mobile and Pensacola had at least tied record highs. We hit 101 degrees in Mobile. We saw a few scattered thunderstorms in the area, and those chances will increase over the next several days.

Rain chances remain scattered Saturday at 30%. A better chance of afternoon thunderstorms is possible over the weekend, especially by Sunday at 60%. The increase in moisture on Saturday also means heat index values could go higher, approaching 110 in some areas.

The heat wave should break down next week with better rain chances each day.

In the tropics, one wave in the eastern Atlantic has a medium chance of development early next week it gets closer to the Caribbean. This is an unusual pattern, seeing a potential mid-Atlantic wave that could develop in June. Systems do not usually form in this area until August and September.
