MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - If you are looking forward to a summer-like forecast, then get ready for just that this weekend. Humidity, temperatures and rain chances are all creeping up for both today and tomorrow, with this pattern lasting through the first week in May.

Highs both Saturday and Sunday will be in the middle 80s with overnight lows in the 60s. Isolated to scattered rain and storms are possible both Saturday and Sunday. While not a washout of a weekend, we do expect splash and dash type showers. Some pockets of rain could have heavy downpours, lightning and gusty winds.

While rain and thunderstorm chances are in the forecast each day starting this weekend and lingering through next week, each day will not be a washout. It will be typical of a summer time pattern, and one of those periods where the rain gear and the WSFA First Alert Weather app will be a great tool to have to track the rain and storms.
