More scattered showers, storms and heat now through the holiday weekend

Daily storm chances running at about 50%

Generally dry now; do we stay that way for the rest of the day?

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A more typical scattered rain pattern will be sticking around for the next few days! Pop-up afternoon and evening showers and storms will continue now through the Independence Day. Will everyone see rain? Unlikely. Is there a decent shot at your location seeing rain at some point over the next three days? Yes.

It will mainly be in the form of afternoon/evening downpours, but we can’t totally rule out at least a few overnight showers or storms on any given night. If you have outdoor holiday weekend plans, keep your weather app handy to check radar!

Highs will hang around 90 degrees through the holiday weekend with overnight temperatures pretty stagnant in the lower 70s. When you factor in dew points in the 70s, the result will be daily heat indices in the upper 90s (and lower 100s if you steer clear of rain showers). Stay hydrated and take breaks in the shade if outside!
