MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Summer-like weather welcomes the unofficial start to summer! Memorial Day Weekend is featuring a good amount of heat, humidity and pop-up thunderstorms.
There is a risk of showers and thunderstorms each afternoon and evening. It won’t rain all day and won’t be a complete washout, so you can definitely still get outside. However, a few thunderstorms could be strong to potentially severe with heavy rain, frequent lightning and strong wind.
There will not be widespread severe weather, but strong storms can develop with little warning. If you’re getting outside during this holiday weekend, download the First Alert Weather App. You can use the radar to track approaching storms, and our app also has the ability to follow your location and send lightning/rain alerts so you stay one step ahead of Mother Nature.
These thunderstorms will be fueled by the plentiful amount of heat and humidity back in our atmosphere. Highs will range from the middle 80s to the low 90s. Those who see a splash of rain will feel temporarily cooler in the 70s and 80s.
