Amanda: Could we be trending drier this weekend?

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Same forecast, different day...

You guess it - today featured another round of showers and storms, and they are continuing to impact some (but not all) spots in our area this evening. An upper-level low continues to spin over our south Alabama counties; to the north of that system we are seeing scattered rain and thunderstorms. So, where do we go from here?

Tonight: While a lack of sunshine and a good coverage of rain early helped limited the amount of heat we saw today, it still looks like we remain mild this evening. Overnight lows dip into the upper 60s and low 70s, which is pretty seasonable for this time of year.

With a continued stream of low-level moisture, patchy fog development is possible during the overnight and into early Friday morning.

Friday: Showers and storms will start to fire again during the peak heating of the day... tomorrow's forecast will closely resemble Thursday's overall weather pattern, but more consistently temperatures will climb into the upper 80s and low 90s, especially in places that stay dry.



The Weekend: A ridge of high pressure starts to build in across the Southeast this weekend; this will kick off a slow drying trend in our forecast. While hit-or-miss showers and storms are still possible on Saturday, by Father's Day on Sunday we see a bit more sunshine and only isolated rain chances.

By the time Monday rolls around, activity will only be isolated in nature. For this time of year, it's likely as dry as it gets! Most of us will stay hot and humid through the middle of next week with only a few rogue storms to track. Temperatures will ramp up in the low to mid 90s across our area as the sun shines next week.
