Heat and Humidity Push Heat Index Over 100°

MOBILE, Alabama -

All the rain we've had recently is starting to evaporate, which means the humidity is incredibly high. The dew point has been pushed up into the low 80s, which is high even by Gulf Coast standards.

When combined with the powerful July sunshine and highs in the low 90s, the heat index will be well over 100 degrees Monday afternoon. Use caution if working or playing outdoors.

There's a 40% chance for a cooling shower or thunderstorm Monday, and a push of drier air will largely eliminate the chance of rain by Tuesday. The transition to a drier, cooler air mass could touch off a few severe thunderstorms. Damaging winds are the main concern. After the action, lows will fall into the comfortable middle to upper 60s again, giving us a nice treat each morning.

Rain chances reappear late next week.

Stormy weather exiting the coast of Africa could turn into a depression sometime this week. We'll be watching.
