MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Hopefully you like the heat because lower 90s look to continue for pretty much the entirety of our 7 day forecast! Some of our “cooler” locations may hang in the upper 80s over the next few afternoons, but most of us hit or exceeds 90°each day. Friday will be the one exception: upper 80s are expected for a good amount of towns.

Rain and thunderstorm chances fluctuate a bit depending on the day of choice; no one day brings high-end rain chances or washout coverage, but there are a few days with slightly better odds of more people seeing showers.

Isolated showers and storms are possible Thursday and Friday.

Thursday and Friday look to be the most active days, but even then each of these will only bring roughly a 30% coverage of afternoon/evening showers and storms.

When it’s not raining it will be partly cloudy just like it has been each afternoon of late. The humidity will be pretty high in the muggy category through Thursday before dipping a little bit for Friday and Saturday thanks to a cold front passage.

That cold front will likely result in a mostly dry weekend with plenty of sunshine... especially Saturday. Soak it up because we know how rare cold fronts are as we head into the summer months!

Then there’s the tropics...

The tropics are heating up a bit with a 60% “medium” chance of Agatha’s remnants re-emerging in either the southern Gulf of Mexico or northwestern Caribbean and becoming a new depression/storm. If it does become a storm, it will get the name Alex and likely stay weak.

The Florida Peninsula and Keys will see the greatest impacts from rain and wind with this system. For us, we won’t see any noticeable effects as it pushes by well to our south.
