Wet afternoon ends, drier and hotter tomorrow

Rain chances decrease in the days ahead

Numerous showers, storms for areas south of U.S. 80 today

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - As expected, its been a wet and stormy day for much of south Alabama. Heavy rain, thunder, lightning and gusty wind have impacted many cities and towns across the southern half of the state. These showers and storms will gradually fade away later this evening. Patchy fog will probably form around sunrise Thursday, so expect some isolated areas of low visibility.

Thursday and beyond, the pattern goes back to what we experienced earlier this week.

That means more heat, less rain and all the humidity fit to print. Afternoon temperatures will skyrocket into the mid and upper 90s; its not out of the question that a few hot spots reach 100 degrees in the days to come. It will feel hotter than that due to the humidity; heat indices will be in the 100-105 degree range.

The coverage of “hit and miss” afternoon showers and storms will drop - so, expect more “miss” and less “hit” from these isolated afternoon storms.

Woof, woof - the dog days of Summer are truly here!
