MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A batch of showers and storms will push across the area this evening; heavy rain, thunder, lightning and some spotty damaging wind gusts are possible in the most intense storm cores. Some will get rain, others won’t - and a few could deal with rough weather.

A mostly dry day Tuesday will be followed by a transition to wetter weather. But before that happens, it will be uncomfortably hot on Tuesday. Temperatures will skyrocket into the 94-99 degree range tomorrow with high humidity making it feel even hotter. One or two spots will have a downpour, but many will stay dry.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected on Wednesday before rain becomes more numerous to end the workweek.

No complete washouts are forecast at this point, but high rain and storm coverage is likely late this week. Another chance of some stronger storms exists Wednesday as well.

Temperatures will go from the middle 90s Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday to the middle 80s Thursday and Friday. You can thank the clouds and elevated rain chances for that temperature drop!

Temperatures will dip late this week with more rain and storms.
