MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Well, it was nice while it lasted. Alabama and much of the Deep South have enjoyed a preview of Fall over the past few days, with lower humidity and mainly dry weather. Summer makes a comeback over the next few days, as increasing humidity will make it feel a bit less comfortable. That same increase in humidity will also mean a slight uptick in the coverage of scattered afternoon thunderstorms, too.
Things return to what you’d probably expect for early September by the end of the week. It’ll be muggy with daily chances for scattered showers and thunderstorms through the weekend and into next week.
No one day looks overly rainy, and we aren’t looking at any cold fronts or storm systems to impact the region. It’ll be the heat-driven pop-up showers and storms that could bring heavy rain, gusty winds and lightning in any given location.
Temperatures will remain steady around 90 degrees with overnight lows returning to the 70s. Unfortunately it’s time to say goodbye to the comfortable 60s we have had of late.
