Rain lingers overnight, more rain Thursday and beyond

Don't cancel your weekend plans, but have a backup option handy!

Will radar this afternoon be active like earlier this morning?

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - After morning showers move out on Thursday, a few additional thunderstorms are expected during the afternoon and evening with highs in the upper 80s. Scattered showers and storms remain in the forecast for Friday with highs pushing 90 degrees.

The big Fourth of July holiday weekend looks rather active with highs pushing 90°. Both Saturday and Sunday feature rain and storm chances around 60% or so based on the latest guidance we have available. It looks to mainly be an afternoon and evening storm threat, but the coverage will be higher than a typical summertime weekend.

We still wouldn’t cancel any outdoor plans, but it will be important to:

1. Have the First Alert Weather App handy to track any storms that do develop so you can seek shelter if needed.

2. Keep tabs on the forecast to see if things change at all between now and Friday.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are likely Friday thru Sunday.
