MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A few scattered showers and thunderstorms remain on radar this evening; these will gradually diminish over the next few hours. A few leftover showers and storms could linger in spots late tonight, but most will be dry. We’ll do it all again tomorrow, though, with a healthy coverage of rain and rumbles, especially by afternoon.

Drier and noticeably cooler air rolls into the state Thursday and beyond - expect highs in the 80s and comfortable lows in the 60s for the end of the work week and into the weekend.

Meanwhile, a disturbance in the southern Gulf of Mexico still has a 40% chance of development over the next five days. It will head northeastward and likely cross over northern Florida before emerging over the southwest Atlantic.

It’s unlikely to develop before crossing Florida, but the impacts for us will be the same regardless of any official development.

That disturbance will push away Wednesday night, and a secondary cold front will push through. That will lead to a much nicer pattern beginning later in the day Thursday.

We’re in for lower humidity, a good deal of sunshine, highs in the 80s to around 90, and lows in the 60s from Thursday to at least Monday.

Thursday may wind up being a bit cloudier, but it should be dry and feature at least some sunshine into the afternoon hours. That’s nitpicking at an otherwise gorgeous forecast!
