MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - More of the same on the way for the second week of August... scattered rain and thunderstorms will develop during the afternoon and linger into the evening hours. Overall coverage will vary from day to day, but most days will be near 50% through Friday - so no guaranteed wet weather this week, but solid chances of getting wet at least a time or two over the course of the week.

Like yesterday, any storms that develop could turn strong to severe with damaging wind, small hail, torrential rainfall, and vivid lightning. Severe weather will certainly not be the norm though!

When it’s not raining it will be partly to mostly cloudy, hot and muggy; daytime highs will generally be in the lower 90s with heat indices in the upper 90s to around 100 degrees.

Speaking of when it’s not raining: the upcoming weekend does look drier with 20% to 30% coverage of rain and storms... so make those mid-August outdoor weekend plans!

The tropics remain quiet close to home, but an area in the eastern Atlantic is being monitored for potential development this week. It likely stays weak, if it develops at all. Regardless of what happens with it, there will be no impacts in the Gulf of Mexico in the short term, but something we will continue to watch as time goes on.
