The heat is taking it up a notch!

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A typical summertime pattern has returned to the forecast, featuring lower rain chances and hotter temperatures than we’ve seen recently.

Each day, scattered showers and storms are possible, but no day will be a washout. As we’re accustomed to this time of year, rain and storms will pop-up on radar and be very hit-or-miss. Some could see more than their fair share with gusty wind and frequent lightning, while others will stay dry!

Those who stay dry will, of course, stay hot! Highs are jumping into the middle 90s this weekend. Add in the humidity, and “feels like” temperatures will jump to around 105°!
