Hottest days will be this weekend; Changes looking likely next week!

Near-record heat will arrive this weekend!

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The forecast is still on for hot, dry weather through the upcoming weekend. However, a break from the 90s and a bit of rain is possible next week courtesy of a cold front on Monday.

The biggest story through Monday is still the hot and dry conditions. Temperatures will continue to rise into the 90s, and although an isolated shower or downpour cannot be ruled out, most everyone will not see rain.

With highs near 95 degrees Sunday, it’s likely we’ll break a record high temperature.

The humidity will be a little more noticeable this weekend with dew points in the 60s, but it won’t be oppressive.

Changes look to be on the way next week! We have a better shot at rain Monday, as well as the possibility of cooler air next week.

It appears a cold front will be able to swing through Monday afternoon and evening. It will bring a chance of rain, but widespread showers and storms do not look likely at this time.

Behind the front will likely be a cooler air mass. Highs could fall back into the middle 80s with lower humidity and dry conditions.

Beyond that, temps will once again head back into the “hot” category.
