MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The streak of mid-90s continued today... the official high temperature at the airport in Montgomery was 97°! Not only was it a bit hotter than normal, but it felt even warmer thanks to a good helping of moisture in our atmosphere. At times we dealt with heat index values at or above 100°, and more of the same is expected as the week continues.
The rain and storm chances do jump to roughly 40% Wednesday afternoon and 30-40% Thursday afternoon.
While it won’t rain everywhere either of these days, the overall risk of your location seeing a shower or thunderstorm is certainly higher than it is today.
Fortunately we aren’t talking any sort of severe weather threat with this week’s storm chances. A repeat of Sunday is not in the cards.
The chance for showers and storms falls back to about 20% for Friday and Saturday. It’s possible as we get closer that those chances will need to be upped just a bit, but as of now the rain chances are looking rather bleak each of those afternoons. Highs will remain in the middle and perhaps upper 90s area-wide.
Other than a couple of days featuring slightly higher rain chances and daily heat indexes in the 100-106° range, the forecast is rather stagnant and quiet.
