First Alert: Tracking typical late summer weather pattern
Isolated to scattered rain and storm chances remain in the forecast each day over the next week.
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Monday will feature partly cloudy skies with afternoon highs warming right near 90 degrees. Isolated pockets of rain and storms will be possible, all due to the heat and humidity in place.
Typical of late summer, those storms will form in the afternoon and early evening hours, diminishing through the evening and into the night. Lows will hover in the 70s with partly to mostly clear skies.
A cold front will slide into the Southeast for the last few days of August. That front will increase rain chances a bit for Tuesday and Wednesday. Highs for midweek will top out in the upper 80s to lower 90s under partly to mostly cloudy skies.
Scattered to isolated rain and storms will be possible both days Tuesday and Wednesday, with a few showers lingering into the evening hours. Overnight lows will hover in the 70s under partly cloudy to mostly clear skies.
The start to September is looking very similar weather wise to how we are forecasted to wrap up August.
Highs Thursday and Friday will climb into the upper 80s to lower 90s. Rain chances remain isolated to scattered in nature, mainly confined into the afternoon hours. Overnight lows will hover in the 70s.
The upcoming weekend will also feature isolated to scattered pockets of rain and storms. Highs will be on either side of 90 degrees next weekend with overnight lows in the 70s.
It is not forecasted to be a washout each day, as the rain and storms will be rather hit-or-miss. Some locations will deal with heavy rain, lightning and gusty winds, while other locations will remain dry, warm and a bit muggy.
