More scattered rain, thunderstorms for the weekend
Temperatures are warming up!
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - If variety is the spice of life, then our forecast is bland. We have a lot going on: heat, humidity, and pop-up showers and thunderstorms, but it is the same old song and dance each and every day. Not much is expected to change over the next few afternoons, and once we finally do see a mix up in the overall weather pattern, it will likely be worse than what we have now. Let’s dive in...
Just like today, the weekend will feature scattered storm activity. No everyone sees rain, and not everyone get thunderstorms. Some towns will see showers and storms, others could get just a few sprinkles and some of you won’t see anything at all. It’s all the luck of the draw!
Temperatures will remain in the 90s for a while. Humidity values will remain stagnant in the “tropical” category - the air you can wear... yuck! When you combine highs in the low 90s with all this humidity, we will have daily heat indices in the 94-99° range.
New model data does suggest that we lower the coverage of rain for the second half of the weekend and that continues into next workweek. Drier air usually means hotter air, and highs will be in the low and maybe even mid 90s by next week. Oh, and our good friend humidity has no plans to leave us anytime soon.
Tropical Update: We’re keeping an eye on possible development in the Gulf next week. Watch the video for the latest info!
