MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Drier air makes it way into the state Saturday, allowing for lower rain chances. But at 30%, don't leave home without the umbrella. Saturday will feature mostly sunny skies through a gradually warming morning. By the afternoon expect partly cloudy skies and a few passing showers and storms. Highs will peak in the upper 80s for many.
Rain chances pick up for the second half of our weekend. Sunday will feature isolated to scattered afternoon storms. Afternoon highs will be similar to Saturday, reaching nearly 90 degrees.
The weather pattern we're stuck in is common during the summertime. Summer official begins in less than a month, but in typical fashion the weather isn't following our calender. So we'll remain in this summertime pattern meaning heating through the day will lead to afternoon storms.

As we near the end of May. we're edging closer to the beginning of June which is also the beginning of the Atlantic Hurricane Season. Given the tropical wave we were watching almost a week ago over the Gulf, we need to be mindful. Long range models are hinting at another disturbance forming over the Gulf around this time next week. Obviously it's far too early to say this will amount to anything, but it is a reminder to remain prepared and vigilant. We'll be watching!
