Heating up with little to no rain in sight

Near 90° temperatures are in the forecast later this week...

One last seasonable, sunny day before above average temps return

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Today was a bright, beautiful and warm May day. Temperatures warmed into the upper 70s to lower 80s across central and south Alabama. I hope you’ve enjoyed this relatively cool air, because we’re about to heat things up.

Temperatures will surge into the upper 80s both Wednesday and Thursday, and 90s are expected by the weekend; fortunately the humidity won’t be overly high or oppressive until the beginning of next week.

If you’re spending time outdoors keep in mind that the tree and especially the grass pollen counts are medium to high, so you could find yourself sneezing for the foreseeable future since there is no significant chance of rain in sight to wash away the pollen.

With a dominant area of high pressure anchored just to our east during this impending warm up, no one day will have a rain chance of more than 20%.

That could change heading into the middle of next week, but as of now it doesn’t look good for rain and storm chances through at least the 19th.
