Lots of heat, some rain this week

Temperatures keep rising towards the triple digits!

High heat is going nowhere after hottest pair of days this year

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Highs jumped into the middle 90s today before rain arrived this afternoon. Expect that same heat to return in the coming days without the cooling rain.

The upcoming week looks much drier to start. Through Wednesday, only a few showers and storms will develop, leaving most of us dry.

Those who stay dry, stay hot. High temperatures will hit the mid-90s with heat indices rising towards 100.

By Thursday, “feels like” temperatures will likely jump above 100, then stay there through the weekend. This is thanks to an increase in humidity, which also means more pop-up showers and storms are possible. Scattered rain is to be expected for the end of the workweek and into the weekend.
