MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Steady as she goes! Full steam ahead! With high pressure still in control of our weather we'll remain with dry, pleasant and warm conditions through the end of the workweek. After a warm day, expect a mild evening and night. Temperatures will cool down gradually tonight but remain warm in the low 60s overnight.

Warm air continues to dominate our forecast for the rest of the last day of the workweek. Highs Friday will be about the same, maybe another degree or so higher and but still dry.

The upper level ridge currently dominating the eastern-half of the U.S will break down as the Bermuda High to our west shifts east. This will allow for our next storm system to arrive from the west. This storm system brought severe weather to much of the Midwest over the past couple days. Thankfully as it approaches our area its becoming more disorganized.  That means its weakening and severe weather isn't in our cards for the weekend. But sadly rain is.

A few showers and storms will be possible as we head into the weekend, but rain chances won't be running particularly high and won't be enough to ruin weekend plans. Expect scattered showers beginning Saturday afternoon and lasting into the evening hours. You can basically put this weather on repeat for Sunday as this storm system slowly sweeps through the state this weekend. rain isn't guaranteed for everyone but just be mindful that we'll have a few passing showers across the state.

High pressure will quickly build back in behind our weekend storm system. We'll return to dry, sunny weather as early as Monday. Temperatures will be closer to average in the low 80s for afternoon highs.
