Rain chances rise into the workweek, heat stays put

Does the heat stick around this week? What about rain chances?

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The dog days of summer continue... and it is hot! Highs jumped into the middle 90s this weekend, and heat index values were in the 100s. There was very little rain around to cool us off. Will this stay the case into the workweek?

Rain chances do happen to rise through next week. We’ll see an overall increase in moisture content, which will lead to slightly higher shower and thunderstorm chances each afternoon and evening.

Monday will be the driest day, but beyond that, rain chances aren’t likely to exceed 40% - 50%. No day will be a washout.

Despite the slightly higher rain chances and additional daily cloud cover expected, peak temperatures will still reach into the middle 90s. Also, more moisture in the atmosphere means it will be more humid, so it’ll feel like 100-108° on any given day. Stay cool!
