Unseasonably warm weather continues

Rain chances trending lower for Friday and the weekend

Mild this evening, but borderline hot for our Thursday afternoon

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A very warm and dry forecast will continue for Alabama through Thursday. Mid-80s are expected both tomorrow with morning clouds giving way to more sun each day... some spots could climb into the upper 80s with the sunshine that’s expected.

By Thursday night, a system will attempt to move in from the west. Forecast models still disagree on what happens with the precipitation associated with that system as it slides into Alabama...

A few scattered showers are a good bet early Friday, but much of the day will be dry.

Saturday and Sunday are shaping up to be primarily dry as well; we’ve removed the Saturday rain chance and lowered Sunday’s down to 20%. Even that will probably be in the far western counties and fairly late in the day. The majority of the weekend will be dry.

Similar to Friday, the weekend will not be a washout and dry conditions will be much more common than wet conditions.

Just don’t be surprised to see a couple of showers or storms pop up on radar over the course of the weekend with skies in the partly to mostly cloudy range. High temps should rise into the lower 80s both afternoons.

A slightly higher chance of showers and thunderstorms exists Monday, but it will not rain everywhere or all day in any one spot. A chance of late day showers and storms is in the forecast for Tuesday, but that probability is also on the low end of the spectrum.

Put simply, there really isn’t a day with a guaranteed rain and storm chance over the next week. That’s mostly due to the lack of consistency among the computer models. However, if we get a better sense of agreement between forecast models, some of our upcoming rain chances may have to be upped. At the same time, though, it’s possible a day sees its rain chances lowered.

Humidity levels will be elevated most days over the next week.

Another forecast aspect to think about this time of year is humidity. Well, over the next week we’ve certainly got some. It will feel humid to even muggy just about every day - especially heading into next week. Here comes that more summery feel!
