Low humidity, low rain chance

Summer gradually returns this weekend

Josh's Thursday night update

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Wow! We missed tying a record low set back in the late 1800s by ONE DEGREE Wednesday morning. We reached 65 degrees, this was our coolest temperature on July 25th since 1909. And, the rest of the day was no slouch, either - even with temperatures reaching the upper 80s to lower 80s, the lower humidity levels made it feel much more comfortable than a typical July afternoon in Alabama. We’ll see more of the same tomorrow, but the humidity, heat and afternoon storms will make a comeback by the weekend...

First things first, though, Friday will be very nice! We’ll start the day in the upper 60s, then warm to near 90 degrees by afternoon. While humidity levels will be slightly higher than Wednesday, it will still feel more comfortable than the nasty humidity July throws our way. And, with humidity levels staying low, that means the risk of rain Friday is essentially zero.

Heat and humidity levels creep up slowly on Saturday and Sunday; as a result, it will feel muggier AND we’ll dodge a few pop-up showers and thunderstorms each weekend afternoon.

Expect more of the same next week, as a more typical Summer pattern takes hold across the Deep South.
