MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Widespread rain and thunderstorms continue to push across the state this evening; like most Summer storms, the most intense cores are producing frequent lightning, torrential rain and gusty wind. These showers and storms will move eastward through the next several hours, but at least a few areas of rain will continue into the night.

Tomorrow will feature a similar forecast - but a small decrease in the coverage of rain. Today, almost all of us had rain. Tomorrow, roughly 50-60% of us will get wet. Again, though, those who experience the most intense storm cores will see very heavy rain, lightning and gusty wind.

Scattered showers and storms are expected Tuesday.

The chance of rain will fall off for the rest of the 7-day period. No one day features a rain chance higher than 30% between Wednesday and Sunday. That’s because the front currently impacting us will slide just to our south and east and stall.

Rain and storm chances drop by Wednesday.

The result will be higher rain and thunderstorm chances just south and southeast of the WSFA 12 News viewing area. Now this could change at least a little bit as the exact position of the front is still not set in stone.

For now we wouldn’t expect anything more than some isolated activity on any given day.
