More record heat on the way

Near-record heat continues through Saturday

Record heat kicks off the weekend!

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - One more day of near-record heat is in store! Saturday’s record high is 87°, set in 1987. We’re expecting to reach near 90°, likely breaking that record.

Patchy fog is possible through early Saturday morning. After a cloudy start with temperatures in the mid and upper 60s, skies will gradually clear into the afternoon and highs will jump to near 90°.

A fizzling cold front will bring a slim chance of a line of showers late Saturday night into Sunday morning, but many will stay dry. The front will bring cooler air, though, and high temperatures will stay the upper 70s Sunday into early next week.

The system that bears watching enters the region late Monday night into Tuesday. Things will continue shifting a bit as models get a better handle on it, but that system will likely bring showers and possibly thunderstorms to a majority of the state.

Tuesday morning and afternoon is when the best rain chance exists, and there is a chance of a few stronger storms depending on how things develop.
