Scattered rain lingers through Friday evening

Dry weather returns for the weekend; storms likely by Monday

Josh Johnson's Thursday night forecast

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Periods of rain, a cloudy sky and chilly weather headlines the forecast for tonight and tomorrow. Scattered showers will continue for the next 24 hours or so, dropping some much-needed rain on parts of the area. While not everyone will get rain, most will. The drive to and from work Friday could be wet for you, so plan accordingly.

Temperatures will stay pretty steady tonight and tomorrow; we’ll spend tonight in the mid 40s, then struggle to warm into the lower 50s tomorrow afternoon.

Rain tapers off Friday night; clouds and patchy drizzle will probably linger into Saturday morning, but most of Saturday will be dry. Sunshine returns by afternoon, and temperatures will warm into the low and mid 60s Saturday afternoon. Sunny, comfortable weather headlines the forecast for Sunday.

Our next front approaches Monday, and it could bring a chance of strong or severe storms. While many of the parameters needed for severe storms will be present, we’ll point out that the surface low will be well to our northeast.

That’s usually a telltale sign of a severe weather setup that doesn’t actually produce severe thunderstorms. That said, there are still a few days for things to change, so we’ll just mention a chance of strong storms for Monday, and refine the forecast over the weekend.
