Coverage of storms decrease throughout the weekend
Nearly everyone stays dry by Sunday and Monday, but that means we are turning up the heat!
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The weekend is upon us... and overall the forecast is looking a bit drier, but also warmer! With that said, we’ve kept Saturday’s rain and storm chance at 40% as more models are on board with some scattered activity once again. Sunday, however, looks much drier at only 20%... so if you have any outdoor yardwork that needs to be done, your chance of seeing wet weather is significantly lower during the second half of the weekend.
Rain chances remain very low on Monday, but rise quite a bit to around 50% for Tuesday and Wednesday. Those days will be similar to what we’ve seen over the last few days.
As for temperatures... they are going to be pretty warm! Highs will be in the lower and middle 90s this weekend into next week; most days will be around 92°-96° and we expect Sunday and Monday looking the hottest.
Much like yesterday, heat indices will easily rise into the triple digits every afternoon. If you dodge rain on any given day, you can expect it to feel like it’s 102°-106°. That is the kind of heat that even us Alabamians can struggle with when it happens every day for several days in a row.
So a friendly reminder to practice heat safety by limiting time spent outdoors, avoiding strenuous activities, wearing loose-fitting and light-colored clothing, and staying hydrated.
