MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Coverage of showers and storms will be few and far between today... a ridge of high pressure is starting to take control, which means there will be a very low chance of seeing any rain today. No activity to track on radar? That makes the heat plus humidity combination the main headline as we wrap up the workweek!

We expect only isolated showers and storms each afternoon now through Friday; a good amount of us will dodge the wet weather all together.

For those interested in precipitation chances, we’re talking 20% today and and 30%/40% Thursday and Friday.

Better rain and storm chances return for the weekend as a cold front sags southward into Alabama. It won’t be a total washout, but some solid rain chances are in the forecast Saturday late afternoon through Sunday evening.

Lower rain chances through Friday, but many see rain at some point this weekend.

We easily made it into the mid-90s today, but the return of upper 90s is anticipated tomorrow and will stick around for three consecutive days.

With the incredibly muggy conditions it will feel like it’s near 105° for multiple hours through Saturday.

For this reason, the Heat Advisory currently in effect will likely be extended through at least Saturday evening.

Better rain chances could cool us off a few degrees by the end of the weekend...

High temperatures will trend down a bit by the second half of the weekend behind the aforementioned cold front. Highs will go from the upper 90s Saturday to the lower 90s Sunday.

Typical early July heat and humidity will be present heading into next week with isolated shower and storm activity during the afternoon and evening hours.
