MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - We are tracking a bit higher rain and storm chances for this weekend as a cold front sinks southward into Alabama.

Expect scattered pockets of wet weather to occur throughout the weekend, but it won’t be a total washout. A couple of strong to severe storms are possible on Saturday lingering into the evening and night time hours. A few of those storms could pack a punch, with strong to damaging wind gusts, heavy rain and lightning all possible.

The heat and humidity will remain high on Saturday, meaning temperatures will again soar into the 90s for many locations, and heat index values will climb 100 degrees.

More Typical July heat and humidity will be present for next week with scattered shower and storm activity during the afternoon and evening hours each day.

While it won’t rain every day in every town across Alabama, the risk of widely scattered rain and storms during the next week is looking decent.

Temperatures next week will mainly reach the lower 90s. Depending on how exactly showers and storms develop on a given day there will be some who fail to reach 90 and some who get a touch hotter than the lower 90s.
