Scattered rain likely through this evening

We’re watching the chance for strong storms Monday

Rain lingers, but the weekend does trend drier!

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - It’s been a wet past 24 hours... scattered showers will continue through this the evening, but the big bulk of the heavy rain/thunderstorms are out of the area. Coverage of wet weather will continue to slowly taper off as the night progresses.

A few showers may linger into early Saturday - good news is it won’t rain on everyone and the majority of our area will be done with showers by then. We will likely deal with some clouds will hang around during the first part of the day, which will impact highs for the day; afternoon temperatures peak in the upper 50s and low 60s.

The sun comes out in full force Sunday, and highs will jump into the mid and upper 60s.

Our next front approaches Monday, and it could bring a chance of strong or severe storms.

Decent instability, helicity and shear will be present, although the best shear amounts will be to our northwest, where the risk is highest. Also, 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 Monday night, and refine the forecast over the weekend.
