Mobile, Ala. (WKRG) – Our hot weather pattern continues into the start of the work week!

Excessive Heat Warnings are in place for Monday for the entire News 5 area as heat index values could reach as high as 115°. Showers and storms will be possible by the back half of the day, so this could bring some isolated relief across the region.

It’s highly recommended to limit your time outdoors, but if you have plans outside, please take all of your heat safety precautions. Take plenty of breaks inside and drinking plenty of water.

We are looking ahead to a drop in humidity mid-week, which should bring some relief. Heat index values will be much lower with highs in the mid-90’s. Moisture increases again heading into the weekend.
