MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A workweek filled with rain chances? That’s something we can all smile about! So far, August is bringing most of central and south Alabama some beneficial showers and storms. It didn’t rain all day - or even on everyone - but the overall coverage of rain was higher than recent days we have. If you didn’t see showers or are looking for more wet weather, there could be more coming tomorrow. Tuesday’s coverage nears 60% and Wednesday/Thursday both feature a 50% chance; no severe weather is in the forecast, but as is always the case with summertime storms there will be heavy rainfall, lightning and gusty winds.

Remember: forecasts are living, breathing things. They are constantly changing and evolving, so checking back for updates (especially in the short term) is important... showers and storms any given afternoon can flare up and fizzle out in an hour or less, so keeping your First Alert weather app handy will help keep you in the loop each day.

Scattered showers and storms are expected this weekend.

The chance of rain drops significantly on Friday, but comes back up to 40% for the first weekend of August. The weekend forecast is still not set in stone with long-range models differing on what exactly pans out. But it’s safe to say there is enough confidence in to introduce a 40% chance each day.

Temperatures will be right around the average of 94 degrees most afternoons. There will be some days just below that number, some days right at it and a day or two just above it.

Lots of heat, humidity and rain chances to track now through the weekend...

No big ups or downs in the temperature or humidity department are expected in the foreseeable future... there are also no tropical threats in the long range for the Gulf of Mexico, so our consistent summertime pattern looks to continue!
