MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - After an extended period of wet weather, we are finally looking ahead to a drier workweek! As we get ready to wrap up August there will be limited rain chances... that doesn’t mean we are completely without showers and thunderstorms on radar each afternoon, but most towns won’t experience a lot of wet weather between now and Thursday.

So far this month we are running well above normal in the rainfall department; Montgomery is about a half-foot above normal for the month and some areas are well above that!

Look for a mostly sunny to partly cloudy sky each day through Thursday. The chance of rain and storms is near 20% Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.

It will feel like it's in the upper 90s and lower 100s Monday and Tuesday.

Tuesday has a better chance of rain and storms during the late afternoon and early evening... even so, coverage is still only around 40%, so not guaranteed wet weather for everyone.

High temperatures will continue to reach into the lower 90s thanks to the sunshine and relatively dry weather. Lower 90s are still considered normal for this time of year. With the mugginess we’ll have, heat index values will be near 100° most afternoons this week, especially today and tomorrow.

An uptick in rain and storm chances will occur Friday and this weekend. While there will almost certainly be scattered showers and storms around most of the weekend, there will be plenty of opportunity to get outside... so as of right now your upcoming Labor Day weekend doesn’t look to be a washout. The weekend looks like a classic summertime pattern with scattered afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms; when it’s not raining it will be partly to mostly cloudy with plenty of humidity and temperatures in the upper 80s.
