MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - After a beautiful Memorial Day weekend, we’ve got increasing humidity and rain chances on the way to kick off June. No one day will bring washout conditions, but rain and thunderstorm chances do go up as we progress through the week. Today was mainly dry, but there are currently a few very rogue showers on radar. Highs climbed to either side of 90° thanks to a partly sunny sky that then turned a bit cloudier.

There is an outside chance of a stray shower late this afternoon into the evening.

Tomorrow will be similar with just a slightly higher chance (20%) of a couple of isolated showers and thunderstorms west of I-65. It will be slightly more humid tomorrow as well.

Rain and thunderstorm chances rise yet again as we head towards the end of the first week of June. We currently have a 30% chance of rain for both Thursday and Friday with humidity levels climbing.

Temperatures will continue to head for the upper 80s under partly to mostly cloudy skies.

The upcoming weekend into early next week brings even higher chances for showers and thunderstorms. There’s no low pressure system or frontal boundary, but the heat and higher humidity will trigger typical summertime shower and thunderstorm activity.

For now, we’ve placed a 40-50% chance of rain for Saturday, Sunday and Monday, but those percentages may need to be adjusted at least slightly as we get closer to the weekend.

High temperatures will come back down to the mid-80s courtesy of the higher rain chances by Sunday.
