FIRST TO ALERT: An even hotter Thursday ahead! Details here.

The trend toward more summer-like temperatures hangs on through the end of the week with some of the hottest afternoons anticipated Mother's Day Weekend. For Thursday, a 20% chance of a few isolated showers and thunderstorms are possible, but by the weekend, rain chances deteriorate before a wetter pattern develops next week.

Through Friday, temperatures will successfully climb to the low 90s in the afternoon before mid 90s arrive for the weekend. Mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies continue to reign until better rain chances arrive late Monday.

A disturbance developing in the Gulf of Mexico looks to move inland over the Southeast early next week, bringing more scattered rain and thunderstorm coverage each day. With more moisture and clouds in place, temperatures don't look to run quite as hot, moderating into the upper 80s—which is still above average for this time of year!
