MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Monday brought many in Alabama a lot of shower and storm activity... thankfully, so far today we have not see as much rain on radar. Since there has not been as much widespread wet weather, temperature have rebounded back into the more seasonable upper 80s/lower 90s. Each and every day will bring a varying coverage, so let’s dive in so you know when the wettest of weather will be...

As it stands right now, no one day for the remainder of the workweek or upcoming weekend has a rain chance above 50%; that’s not to say you should plan on staying dry each afternoon, so you will want to keep your First Alert weather app handy if you plan on heading out and about.

Tonight we are mostly quiet with a few showers still lingering early... lows dip into the upper 60s and low 70s. Some patchy areas of fog are possible again Wednesday, but much like Tuesday morning it won’t stick around long.

Slightly drier conditions are expected tomorrow, but a few rogue storms are not out of the question. Highs will climb to 90° or warmer for almost everyone thanks to a mix of sun and clouds, plus a lower chance of rain.

Just a couple of isolated showers and storms Wednesday.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms stay in the forecast to round out the workweek, but neither Thursday nor Friday will be a washout. We’re looking at a 50/50 shot at rain each day.

The weekend isn’t entirely dry, but based on what we’re seeing we recommend some outdoor plans! Things don’t look too wet, and there will be plenty of dry weather each day.

Heading into next week, there are signs that a cold front will attempt to push in from the north. This will enhanced rain chances and bring down temperatures a bit. Stay tuned for exact details on this.

Until then, daytime highs will be coming up a touch into the low and perhaps mid-90s. With our normal high this time of year standing at 93°, this forecast isn’t crazy; it’s just a bit hotter than where we’ve been.

Peak heat indices each afternoon will head for the upper 90s courtesy of the very muggy conditions sticking around.
