MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The next seven days will bring a classic hodgepodge of Summer weather to the great state of Alabama. If you’ve spent a Summer here and paid even a little attention, you know the drill. You wake up to a partly cloudy sky in the morning - occasionally, there’s some scattered fog. It’s warm and muggy. Sunshine builds in by mid-morning, then a few scattered showers and thunderstorms fire up by midday. Where it rains, it usually doesn’t last long - and when the rain ends, the sun comes back out and makes the air feel very muggy!

Elsewhere, its hot and humid with a mix of sun and clouds.

Well, if you like that kind of thing, you’ll love the next seven days.

Typical summer-like heat and activity on radar is expected over the next week or so...

By Saturday we will return to more pop-up activity with many of us dodging the rain. The second half of the weekend on Sunday looks pretty dry as well. Both days will feature a healthy amount of sunshine.

Typical summertime rain and storm chances are then in the forecast as we push into next week, but nothing widespread is anticipated.

Humidity levels will be tolerably low through Thursday before rising.

Temperatures this weekend into next week will warm up a touch as highs head for the lower and middle 90s. With the humidity edging back up by the weekend, we will likely see heat index values into the lower 100s.

We don’t foresee anything as brutal as what we endured with last week’s heatwave, however!
