First Alert: Warm, wet pattern ahead

Scattered showers possible now through the weekend, but more rain is expected next week

First Alert: Isolated showers earlier Saturday

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Grab your umbrella now and put it by the door. You’ll need to keep it nearby over the next 7 days.

A line of light, isolated showers will continue to push through our area, heading southeast, during the first half of the day Saturday. Most of us will be dry after lunchtime, and it will be warm with highs in the low 70s.

The heat continues to crank up into Sunday, but so do rain chances. Highs will jump into the middle 70s. Scattered showers will develop Sunday, but still, the weekend overall will not be a washout.

We’ll start the workweek with temperatures in the 60s again and rain only scattered about, but that rain will become widespread by the middle of next week. The rain will be heavier and last longer, creating a flooding threat. The rain will be particularly persistent in north Alabama, and all that rain will drain into our rivers and may create some river flooding problems for us later next week.
