MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - We might be wrapping up Father’s Day and our weekend, but we are just starting to see moisture and rain chances return to the forecast. Coverage of showers and storms will continue to grow during the upcoming workweek.
Most of the wet weather we saw today was isolated and concentrated in far western portions of the state; while not everyone saw rain, we will have plenty of opportunities coming our way soon...
A warm and somewhat wet pattern will linger into much of next week with daily rounds of scattered rain and storms returning, so long term our weather pattern won’t chance much across central and south Alabama.
Most mornings will start off dry and muggy with lows dipping into the upper 60s and low 70s; we will remain relatively warm, with temperatures that are seasonable on either side of 90° each and every afternoon. Thanks to sunshine early during the day, we will likely see diurnally driven storms during the peak heating hours of the afternoon.
A couple of days during the week will likely be wetter than others, but as of right now no day is a total washout. There will be periods of rain each and every day, but as of right now Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday likely have the highest coverage of showers and storms.
This rain is a good thing... this will hopefully bring some much needed relief to areas across the state that are still abnormally dry or in early drought stage.
Upper 80s and low 90s will continue to dominated as rain chances fade a bit by next weekend.
