Comfortably warm today and Wednesday, but heat returns soon

Highs head for 90°+ by Friday and the Memorial Day holiday weekend

Terrific Tuesday in progress, but showers could return tonight!

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The next couple of days look quiet with high temperatures expected to only climb into the upper 70s to mid 80s (depending on where you live, some spots in south Alabama could be warmer)... overall though Tuesday and Wednesday both look to be generally rain-free, so humidity is a bit lower and our warmth will be comfortable!

While a rogue sprinkle or two later today is possible, the majority of us stay dry.

A weak frontal boundary along the I-10 corridor could focus some showers and thunderstorms tonight into Wednesday morning for the southern third of Alabama.

A chance of showers and storms is there for those south of Montgomery Tuesday night.

Once we get to Thursday, Friday and the big Memorial Day holiday weekend, the forecast shifts to a completely summer pattern... daily highs will range from the upper 80s to the lower 90s under partly cloudy skies.

It’ll be muggy each day with overnight lows staying warm in the mid 60s, if not higher.

Dew points won't be too bad until the holiday weekend.

The heat and humidity will fuel those typical daily pop-up showers and thunderstorms each day throughout the weekend; as is usually the case in these types of patterns, it’s impossible to pinpoint who has the best chance of rain, when it’ll fall and how heavy it’ll be.

For now, we’re keeping a 30-40% chance of pop-ups each day beginning Thursday. We wouldn’t cancel any plans at this point; just have a plan ready in case an unwanted thunderstorm bubbles up over your area!
