Rain chances going up soon!

Better shower and storm coverage tomorrow, this weekend means lower temps

Amanda: Thursday evening forecast update

Montgomery, AL (WSFA) - There’s no getting around it, it was a sizzling Thursday across the area! No matter where you live in Alabama, you definitely felt both the heat and the humidity... but does that change sooner rather than later?!

Rain and storm chances through the rest of our evening will be limited to parts of far south/east Alabama. It’s a non-zero everywhere else, but don’t expect much in other locations.

Alabama joins a good chunk of the country baking in a mid-July heat wave. Silver lining? We are not in the the worst of it... Heat Advisories and Excessive Heat Warnings are in effect for a lot of the eastern half of the country north of us.

Thankfully, Mother Nature will start to provide some help in the form of some showers, starting tomorrow and running into the weekend.

Scattered storms will ramp up a bit in coverage, and that means heat falls a few degrees.

The long term forecast suggest the end of July could be slightly below average... that means air temperatures in the 80s and dew points that are a bit more manageable. Hooray!
