Bring on the lower humidity!

Rain chances, humidity go away for a few days

Josh Johnson's Tuesday evening update

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Any chance we are afforded the opportunity to use the phrase “lower humidity” in July - we’ll take it! And, that’s just what will happen over the next few days, as an unusual upper trough will push a cooler, less muggy airmass into the Deep South tonight, tomorrow and Thursday. Enjoy, because we all know it won’t last - the long, hot Alabama Summer will return all too soon.

We measure how muggy it feels using a number called the dewpoint - this time of year, 70s are really muggy, 60s feel OK, and dew points in the 40s and 50s feel very comfortable. The cooler, drier air will filter into Alabama tonight, you’ll really feel the difference by tomorrow, tomorrow night and Thursday, though.

The drop in humidity will also bring the rain chance down to near zero for Wednesday and Thursday.

Friday and beyond, the muggy, hot weather will slowly return - along with the usual assortment of afternoon showers and thunderstorms.
