MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The beautiful week of May weather marches right... our forecast will remain dry, mostly sunny and comfortable through the end of the workweek. Afternoons will be warm, mainly in the middle to upper 80s, but the nights will be comfortable in the upper 50s and lower 60s. That is courtesy of low humidity by our standards.

We will shift from a mainly sunny sky to one that is partly cloudy later in the week, and it will likely remain that way this weekend and early next week. There will still be a good deal of sunshine overall, but it will be more of a mix of sun and clouds each afternoon.

That uptick in cloud cover is due to increasing moisture/humidity.

You really won’t notice the jump in humidity on Thursday, Friday or really even Saturday, but you’ll probably notice a change in how it feels Sunday and beyond.

That increase in cloudiness will be accompanied by a slight chance of showers and storms this weekend. That would mainly be for Sunday, which has a 20% chance of rain. We wouldn’t worry at all about outdoor weekend plans based on this forecast.

The heat cranks up a bit early next week with 90s likely back in the forecast.

High temperatures will top out in the upper 80s this weekend with mild overnights in the 60s. It does look like we see our first stretch of 90-degree heat once next week kicks off, so be aware of that.
