Rain and storm chances are rising

Rain coverage ramps up this weekend and into early next week

Off-and-on rain will continue through this evening

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Humidity and rain chances have returned once again! The mugginess and daily showers and storms are going nowhere for the foreseeable future as we’ve flipped the script on our weather pattern across Alabama.

Tropical moisture from the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico will spill into the Deep South through at least early next week, prompting daily chances for rain. That moisture will also make for uncomfortable humidity.

Scattered to numerous showers will continue to work there way across the state the rest of today and tomorrow. The rain will tend to favor the afternoon and evening hours; if you have outdoor plans, mornings will give you the best chance of dodging the rain. If your plans can’t be moved up in the day, you don’t need to cancel, necessarily. Just have a rain backup option and keep our weather app handy!

Numerous showers and storms are a good bet this weekend, as well. Many of us will likely see more than one round of rain between Saturday and Sunday. We’re not saying cancel outdoor plans, but definitely make an indoor backup option.

Elevated rain chances will continue into next week as the pattern remains very active for this time of year. The good news is high temps will struggle to warm past the 80s because of the higher-end rain coverage.

By the time we get to the middle of next week, there’s a pretty good chance that the entire region will have picked up 2-3″+ of rain. With most of that coming over a period of several days, widespread flooding is not anticipated. However, any given day could feature isolated instances of flooding with the potential for storms to be very efficient rain producers.
