MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The forecast for the upcoming week is pretty much what we’ve seen over the last few days. Sunshine will dominate early in the day, then clouds will build and isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop by the middle of the afternoon. The only exception is Tuesday (more on that below...)
As for most of the week’s forecast, afternoon and evening storms are likely to be scattered on radar. Not everyone will see rain everyday. In fact, only about 30% to 60% of our area will receive a splash each day. This is a very normal pattern for summertime, so it appears Mother Nature really sees Memorial Day as the start to the season!
With the possibility of seeing storms each day, it’s a good idea to keep an umbrella nearby and a way to check radar if outside. However, there will be no need to cancel outdoor plans, as these storms will be very hit-or-miss!
One exception to this repeating forecast is Tuesday’s forecast, which will likely feature more cloud cover and higher rain chances. That will keep temperatures nearly 10 degrees cooler than weekend temps!
The humidity won’t be going anywhere this week, but afternoon high temperatures may stay in the middle 80s due to cloud cover and rain showers for a few days.
