Jill: Hot temperatures and mainly dry weather

First Alert Weather: 5 p.m. update 08-27-18

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - It's warm and a little muggy outside this Monday afternoon. There are just a few showers on radar, but most areas will remain rain-free and continue to provide water for your lawn and garden.

At least with the dry weather, the mosquito population has backed off.

The weather looks pleasant for this time of year at Regions Field for the Barons game. Temperatures fall from the lower 90s into the lower 70s Monday night.

It will feel near 100 degrees on Tuesday afternoon and there will be a 20% coverage of showers and perhaps a storm Tuesday afternoon.

It will be even hotter with a slightly higher rain chance on Wednesday.

Our Next Big Thing will be scattered showers and storms each afternoon starting on Thursday and lingering through Labor Day.

The activity will tend to wane in the evening hours and that's good news for the start of the UAB and Samford football season.

If you are hanging out inside on Saturday and watching Alabama or Auburn play their first game of the season, just be mindful that storms may interrupt your barbeque plans or reception but the coverage will only be about 40% as of now.

Labor Day looks hot and we will once again see scattered showers and storms.

Fall officially begins in 25 days though I don't see a cool down until maybe the middle of September.
