First Alert: Hot, mainly dry Wednesday

Rain coverage increases Thursday and beyond

Amanda: Tuesday afternoon forecast update

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Whew. May continues to do its best June impersonation, and I have to give credit (blame) where credit (blame) is due - May is doing a near-perfect June impression. Temperatures Tuesday skyrocketed into the 87-92 degree range; the only difference between almost-June and actual-June was the relatively low humidity today.

Wednesday will feature more of the same - we’ll again top out in the upper 80s to lower 90s with more sun than clouds. A slight increase in humidity levels will likely give us enough moisture to kick off one or two random showers or storms by afternoon. Most of us will be dry, though.

A cold front approaches late Thursday and into Friday - as it arrives, the coverage of rain will go up. It won’t rain all day, every day from Friday through Sunday, but each day will feature a healthy coverage of rain and storm clusters. Severe weather is unlikely, but some intervals of heavy rain, thunder, lightning and gusty wind are a good bet for Mother’s Day Weekend. Outdoor plans should have a rain backup option, just in case.
