MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The delightful stretch of weather is continuing this afternoon and will last through Mother’s Day weekend! Not only will we see plenty of sun, but the humidity will be in the very comfortable category through tomorrow before rising just a touch for Sunday. Overnight lows over the weekend be refreshingly comfortable to downright chilly by early May standards. We’re talking upper 40s tonight and middle 50s by Saturday morning... some of the coolest spots may fall as low mid 40s tonight, which isn’t too far from record territory.

Highs will then head for the low 80s on Saturday and upper 80s on Sunday under mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies.

It won’t be a completely blue sky, but there will be more sunshine than clouds!

Basically we’re looking at a picture perfect forecast for Mother’s Day weekend. You’ve got the green light to make those outdoor plans each day! That includes anything from heading to the lake, sitting poolside and visiting the beach to having a picnic, grilling out, going to the park, and hiking.

The pattern then returns to a more active state beginning late Sunday night. There will be periodic chances for showers and thunderstorms through Thursday. Right now it looks like late Sunday night, Monday, Tuesday night, Wednesday, and Wednesday night have the highest rain chances.

Determining exactly when the highest rain and storm coverage will be is a bit difficult this far out, so expect at least some changes regarding rainfall probabilities as we get closer and closer.

By the time we get to the end of next week we will see a healthy 2-3″+ of rain, but flooding isn’t a big concern due to our current dry stretch and the rain coming over a 4-day period.

The humidity will also come storming back as we get flow from the Gulf of Mexico. That increase in moisture will also bring in some ingredients supportive of a few strong storms next week, but the severe weather threat isn’t something we’re concerned about as of now.

Temperatures will remain below average for this time of year heading through next week courtesy of the clouds and rain chances. Highs will only be in the middle and upper 70s.
