MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Showers and storms moved through parts of south Alabama earlier this afternoon, but wait - more is on the way later tonight into early tomorrow morning. If you did not deal with any wet weather today, then you likely remained mild and and muggy; most spots have climbed into the lower 80s thanks to morning sunshine, and we will stay warm thanks to an overcast sky...

While we aren’t expecting it to pour non-stop, but there is a high probability of seeing some rain and thunderstorms now and continuing through Wednesday morning. It won’t be a washout on Wednesday, but at least a few additional scattered showers and storms are possible throughout the afternoon behind the morning rain. It will be cooler as the stationary front that’s located along I-85 today pushes to our south. Highs will only reach the 70s

Some showers could continue into Wednesday night and Thursday morning, but models disagree on whether or not that actually happens. As a result, we’re maintaining low-end rain chances through lunchtime Thursday.

Even if it doesn’t rain Thursday morning, skies will remain mainly cloudy. That will keep high temperatures well below average in the upper 60s. That’s a solid 15 degrees below average for mid-May.

The good news is the sunshine returns just in time for the weekend! Skies will be mostly sunny Friday, Saturday and Sunday as high pressure takes control of our weather here in the Southeast.

Temperatures will respond nicely as well, pushing into the upper 70s on Friday, the lower 80s on Saturday and the middle 80s on Sunday. The humidity will in the comfortable category each afternoon to make things even better.

More wet weather expected through Thursday, but then the weekend trends drier!

It’s possible we see another chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms heading into early next week, but it’s far too early to say much more than that.
