MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - This time of year, heat and humidity plus a daily chance for isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms is kind of the norm. That doesn’t change over the next couple of days, but highs will fluctuate a bit and so will our coverage of wet weather. Not every day will feature the same rain coverage, but there’s no day with a chance of rain above 60%.

Overall coverage appears to drop a bit back into that isolated category as we round out the weekend and head into a new week.

Heat, humidity and pop-up storm activity expected now through the weekend with less rain...

Mid-90s return for Sunday and next week as well... throw in the mugginess and it will feel like it’s in the 100s each afternoon! Some of us will be up in the 104-107° range once again for feels like temperatures next week, so be prepared for that.

Tropical Update: We still have two other systems out in the tropics that we’re watching, but neither will threaten Alabama, the Gulf Coast or impact the Southeastern United States.

Tropical Storm Grace will soon restrengthen into a hurricane; its track takes it across the Bay of Campeche and into Mexico. It is no threat to the United States.

Tropical Storm Henri is still out near Bermuda, but it is curving back towards the United States. It’s still forecast to then move away from the East Coast, but it continues shifting closer and closer to bringing impacts to the Northeast and New England.

It certainly will need to be watched closely as any additional westward shifts could lead to more significant impacts up there.
