MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Rain activity will remain limited and rather hit-or-miss for Thursday. Widely scattered showers and storm chances are back in the First Alert forecast Friday and into the Labor Day Weekend.

The First Day of September will feature a mix of sun and clouds. Afternoon highs Thursday will warm into the middle to lower 90s. A few showers and storms will populate across the area a while a majority of the region will remain dry. Lows will hover in the 70s Thursday night under partly to mostly clear skies.

The weekend will be typical of what we see during late summer. Scattered afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms will form due to the heat and humidity in place. This will cause higher rain chances not only for Friday but through Saturday and Sunday as well.
