MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A classic July combination continues through the upcoming weekend, with heat, humidity and isolated afternoon and evening thunderstorms. Both weekend days will see around a 30% coverage of these showers and storms; if you have outdoor plans, don’t cancel but do have a backup plan. The heat will be very typical for this time of year. Most Alabama cities, towns and communities will end up between 91-96 degrees both weekend days.

Isolated showers and storms are possible this weekend.

Drier weather moves in just in time for the weekend. Only isolated shower and storm coverage is expected Saturday and Sunday; rain chances are running near 30%, but many see a mostly dry weekend for outdoor plans!

Afternoons will be spent in the lower 90s Saturday and mid-90s come Sunday... that’s near normal for late July in central Alabama. The mugginess will result in feels like temperatures at or just above 100 degrees both afternoons.

Coverage of rain ranges from isolated to scattered now through next week!

More mid-90s are forecast next week with daily isolated to widely scattered showers and thunderstorms. The mugginess won’t be going anywhere, so heat indices will likely be between 100 and 105 degrees in most places across the WSFA 12 News viewing area. Heat Advisory criteria may be met on some days depending on how things end up going.

No concentrated or widespread rain events are forecast next week as of now, so look for a drier week than we have observed so far this week!
