Still hot, stray showers possible

30% chance for showers today, then back to 20% coverage for Thursday, Friday and Saturday

More heat, less rain as we head towards the weekend

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Not much is changing in our forecast day-to-day. We currently see a few isolated showers and storms on radar, but a large portion of our area is staying dry. Though it was hot earlier this afternoon, humidity stayed manageable. So, what changes from here?

A dip back to 20% rain chances will occur for the Thursday - Saturday time period, making for an excellent 3-day stretch to spend time outdoors. However, it will be getting hotter to round out the workweek.

Afternoon highs will rise from the mid-90s Thursday to the upper 90s Friday and Saturday. The forecast still calls for highs of 97-98 degrees Friday through Monday, and if we do in fact reach 98° on any given afternoon in Montgomery, it’ll be the hottest temperature recorded since early last October.

Unfortunately, dew points will creep up this weekend into next week along with the temperatures. That means it will not just be hot, but it’ll be muggy once again. What else is new, though?!

If you’re hoping for a legitimate shot at rain and storms, late Sunday into next week may be just what you need. While it doesn’t necessarily look overly wet on any one day, the rain and storm chances do rise -- especially for Monday and Tuesday.
