MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - It won’t be record-breaking, but the heat and humidity combo is the main story as the last week of July gets underway here across Alabama... daily highs will be in the mid and upper 90s each afternoon with the exception of today. Monday’s highs stayed in the lower 90s thanks to a bit more clouds and a few scattered showers. While there is rain on radar now, coverage and intensity will fizzle out after sunset.

Lower chances for rain Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday around 20% will support highs at or above 95° degrees. There will be a good deal of sunshine each of these days; there will also be enough humidity to make it feel like it’s at or just above 100°!

A front will approach Alabama from the north on Friday. This will generate a better chance of showers and thunderstorms Friday and Saturday... coverage will still only be scattered at best unless the front winds up dropping farther south than currently projected.

Those with the best chance of seeing wet weather Friday and Saturday will be along and north of U.S. 80/I-85. South of those roadways rain chances drop off.

Lower rain coverage returns for Sunday and early next week. It’s looking like a 20-30% kind of forecast for this period as of now. As a result, upper 90s will return for many of us after seeing mid-90s Friday and Saturday.

Mid and upper 90s likely for the remainder of the workweek...
