First Alert: Rain and storm coverage trending higher
Rain and storm chances rise for Friday, through the holiday weekend and into the start of next week.
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Friday will feature a mix of sun and clouds. Highs will hover in the upper 80s to lower 90s. Showers and storms chances rise in the afternoon and evening hours, diminishing in coverage through the night. Lows will hover in the lower 70s under partly cloudy 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.
Saturday and Sunday will again be warm and muggy. Afternoon highs will climb close to 90 degrees both days under partly cloudy skies. Due to the heat and humidity, afternoon showers and storms will form across the region. Some rain and storms could be intense with heavy rain, lightning and gusty winds. Overnight lows through the weekend will remain in the lower 70s.
While not a washout for all, it would be a good idea to have a rain back-up plan this Labor Day Weekend, in case a storm moves over your neighborhood.
Speaking of Labor Day, Monday will again feature partly cloudy skies along with afternoon highs in the 80s and 90s. Scattered to isolated rain and storms will populate in the afternoon and evening times. Lows will hover in the 70s under partly cloudy skies.

Overnight lows will hover in the 70s. Scattered showers and storms will form due to the heat and humidity, mainly in the afternoon and evening hours.
