First Alert: Rain and Storm chances remain in the forecast
Tracking drier weather and slightly less humid air this weekend and into the start of next week.
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The weather pattern remains much the same for Friday, as shower and thunderstorm chances are again in the First Alert Forecast. Drier, slightly less humid air will move into the region this weekend, all thanks to a cold front pushing south across of the area.
Friday will remain warm and muggy. Afternoon highs will warm into the upper 80s to lower 90s under partly to mostly cloudy skies. Showers and storms will again start to form in the afternoon hours, due to a boundary moving south across the region.
A few storms could be intense, with frequent lightning, heavy rain and gusty winds, but it will not be a washout for all across Central and South Alabama. Overnight lows will hover in the 70s through the end of the week.
The weather pattern looks to change for the better this weekend. The aforementioned weak cold front is forecasted to slide south of the area. That will knock down rain chances for both Saturday and Sunday, with a large majority of Central and South Alabama staying dry this weekend.
Afternoon highs Saturday and Sunday will warm into the upper 80s to lower 90s under partly to mostly sunny skies. The humid factor will also start to drop a tad, making it feel slightly better to be outside this weekend.
This weather pattern looks to remain in place as we move through the start of next week. Monday we are forecasting partly to mostly sunny skies with very limited rain chances. Highs will hover in the middle to lower 90s with the slightly lower humidity values. Lows will also remain in the lower 70s.
Rain chances do increase a tad as we push into Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of next week. With showers and storms again possible and the humid factor rising slightly. Afternoon highs will hover in the 90s and overnight lows in the 70s.
We are tracking another cold front late next week, if that front moves in as forecasted, it looks to again give us the chance to drop temperatures and humidity values as we move into next weekend. Something we will watch closely in the First Alert Weather Center.
