MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Moisture has returned! This is changing our weather pattern in two ways: rain chances are slowly increasing, and heat index values are slowly rising.
Some cities touched 100° again on Sunday. Because of this, we’ve raised Monday’s high temperature a bit more, because highs have been warmer than models have been showing over the past few days. Expect a very warm day with highs in the mid to upper 90s and heat index values 100+.
A low level trough over the Florida Panhandle will increase moisture levels in our atmosphere tomorrow through Thursday. Through the workweek, scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms are possible, highs will be in the low and mid 90s, and heat index values will be near and above 100°.
A cold front will approach Friday and Saturday, which will keep our rain chances elevated into the weekend.
