MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Our widespread coverage of rain is coming to an end soon, but will we be completely done with showers and storms? When it’s not actively raining in your neighborhood it will be rather cloudy and muggy; temperatures ranged from barely hitting the upper 60s to low and mid 70s thanks the lack of sunshine.

A welcomed cold front will sweep across Alabama later tonight, putting an end to this wet and active pattern just in time for the holiday weekend! Until then, we could still see a few scattered pockets of activity, but additional rainfall is not guaranteed for everyone.

Our sky will feature a mix of sun and clouds Friday with highs in the lower 80s. The humidity will be much lower to make things feel great for late May...

Humidity levels drop a bit to end the week.

Sun and clouds mixed will continue all weekend long with temperatures rising from the lower 80s Saturday to the upper 80s both Sunday and Memorial Day. Some locations will see 90 in all likelihood. The humidity does creep back up toward the end of the holiday weekend, but it won’t be as muggy as it is right now.

Signals exist in our long-range forecast models that would suggest at least a low chance of rain for the middle of next week. Right now it’s too early to mention anything above 20-30%, but just know at least a small chance of rain will return at the end of the 7 day forecast.

Dry and sunny through the weekend; a few showers could return next week.

Temps should continue to stay very warm near 90 degrees even with the introduction of a couple of showers and storms in the forecast.
