Showers gradually depart

Rain comes to a temporary end

Josh Johnson's Tuesday evening update

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - After a bumpy afternoon with multiple waves of rain and thunderstorms, things are becoming more quiet this evening. We’ll mention a few isolated pockets of rain, but those should be spotty at best. Many of us will stay dry through the evening and overnight.

Tomorrow, expect a classic June day in Alabama. We’ll see a mix of sun and clouds throughout the day, a random scattering of showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon and early evening, and plenty of heat and humidity.

A front approaches on Thursday; it will bring an increase in the coverage AND intensity of the rain and thunderstorms. While it won’t rain all day, some intervals of rain and thunder are a good bet. And, some of these storms will be capable of producing damaging wind gusts and frequent lightning.

More heat, more humidity and fewer showers and storms will be the recipe for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Afternoon temperatures by the weekend will soar into the mid 90s, and the humidity will make it feel more like 100 degrees at times.
