(WALA) - The temperatures will be HOT today and as of midmorning you can feel the heat cranking up. We’ll reach the mid- to upper 90s this afternoon, with “feel like” temperatures reaching over 105 degrees.

There won’t be any rain around until the late afternoon and evening hours. Storm coverage will be at 40%, but the coverage of rain ramps up later this week and the heat levels will start to decline. Highs drop back under 90 degrees on Thursday through the weekend.

In the tropics, a disturbance in the Caribbean is tracking northwest to the Bay of Campeche. Odds of development are at 20%. We still have to watch things closely out there over the next several weeks.
