MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Our summertime pattern will hold strong this weekend with daily scattered shower and thunderstorm development expected. No one day will bring widespread rain, but there will be a scattering of showers and storms each afternoon and evening, which is very similar to what happened the past couple of days... coverage of rain may be at its highest during the 4-9pm window each of the next three days, but pop-ups are possible earlier in the afternoon as well.

Temperatures through Sunday will be seasonably hot around 92-94 degrees, but the humidity will make each day feel like it’s around 100°. Pretty much take what it felt like today, copy it and paste it into the weekend forecast.

As we head into next week, a frontal boundary will push in from the north. This will enhance rain chances Monday and Tuesday... more models suggests that we will see a good coverage of rain, so expected more numerous rain by early next workweek.

Scattered showers this weekend could lead to more rain early next week...

Activity returns to a more isolated to scattered level by the second half of the week as the front essentially washes out over the Deep South.

As a result of the higher rain chances, highs will come back into the 80s for a few days next week -- something to enjoy this time of year!
