MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Scattered showers and thunderstorms are ongoing across much of central Alabama this evening. Some of these have been very intense, producing gusty wind, hail and tons of lightning. They’ll keep moving eastward and gradually diminish as the night progresses.

Tomorrow, we do it again. Scattered thunderstorms will fire Tuesday morning into early afternoon; these could also produce isolated pockets of wind damage, large hail and perhaps a brief tornado. Then, a cluster of storms will form and push across the state Tuesday afternoon into evening, this will pose a risk of damaging wind, hail and a tornado or two, as well.

The tornado risk is low, but not zero. Stay close to good sources of weather information on Tuesday - the timeline opens around 9am and lasts through roughly 10pm.

As for temperatures: the next few afternoon will features highs in the 80s with a bit of humidity.

Our mornings are mild, too... we will likely only dip down into the upper 60s/low 70s due to a lot of moisture and a good bit of cloud cover.

The second half of the workweek looks to be quieter, and we could even get a nice little dip in temperatures. Highs on Thursday will likely only climb into the upper 70s and overnight lows that evening could be in the lower 50s. This cooler, drier air won’t stick around long... we gradually warm things back up by the weekend, and Mother’s Day will be mild in the upper 80s! As of right now, things look dry for much of the weekend, but we will keep an eye out for returning rain chances.
