MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Blistering heat and humidity headline the forecast over most of the next seven to ten days; afternoon temperatures will skyrocket into the 88-93 range through the weekend, with even hotter temperatures possible next week. As far as rain is concerned, the forecast is a bit more murky. Friday and Saturday probably present the best coverage of rain for Alabama, but even then, its not a rain all day or rain on everyone situation.

And, each day in the next seven will have at least some chance of one or two isolated showers or thunderstorms.

Tonight and the first half of tomorrow also look quiet with highs surging back into the lower 90s. While we’re quiet, a thunderstorm complex (referred to as an MCS) will quickly push south-southeastward across Mississippi. Some of the rain and storm action from this may push into western Alabama after 3 p.m. That doesn’t mean everyone else will be dry; it’s just the chance of wet weather is highest west of I-65 on Friday.

Showers and storms are possible through Saturday night.

If you don’t see any rain from this, additional scattered showers and storms are expected Friday night, Saturday and Saturday night. It’s not a setup that favors constant rain, but scattered activity will almost certainly occur.

Highs may hang just below 90 degrees on Saturday, but don’t get used to it.

It will feel like it's above 100 degrees next week.

The heat builds next week as high temperatures soar into the mid-90s every afternoon under a mix of sun and clouds. Not only will it be hot, but it will be very, very muggy.

This combination will support the hottest heat indices we have seen so far this year into the 100° to 106° range beginning Monday. Should this forecast hold it’s possible the National Weather Service will issue a Heat Advisory for part of next week.

There will be at least some shower and thunderstorm activity possible each day next week. We wouldn’t bank on seeing rain to cool you off, but the pattern will support random shots at seeing storms here or there.
