MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - We are wrapping up the workweek with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Some storms are lingering on radar this evening, then tomorrow, a 60% chance of rain returns. Similar to today, it’s a decrease in overall rain coverage, and you will have plenty of dry periods, but you’ll still want to keep an umbrella nearby.

Temperatures will be a touch warmer with highs in the lower 90s. It will feel like it’s in the upper 90s to near 100 degrees.

Heat indices will easily continue to rise into the triple digits. If you dodge rain, you can expect it to feel like it’s closer to 105° or so. That is the kind of heat that even us Alabamians can struggle with when it happens every day for several days in a row. Friendly reminder to practice heat safety by limiting time spent outdoors, avoiding strenuous activities, wearing loose-fitting and light-colored clothing, and staying hydrated.
