MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Rain chances are forecasted to increase for the start to the work and school week. Expect widely scattered showers and storms from Monday through early Thursday.

Flash flooding is a concern for parts of Alabama on Monday and Tuesday as a cold front and low pressure system brings heavy rain to the area. Always remember to turn around, don’t drown, if you see any flooding over roadways. The storm cells could also produce gusty winds and frequent lightning, but no major severe weather is expected during the next several days.

Due to the rain and clouds expected, afternoon high temperatures will lower a bit for the start of the week. Highs will struggle to warm into the upper 70s to start the week with overnight lows hovering in the upper to middle 60s. Due to increased moisture and rain around the area, the muggy factor will stick around through at least late week.
