MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A mix of clouds, sun and occasional rain will unfold each afternoon across the state of Alabama for the foreseeable future. It won’t rain on everyone, it won’t rain all day, but scattered rain and thunderstorms will occasionally bring a quick downpour to your location. The best chance of rain comes each afternoon and evening, with the coverage of rain generally decreasing after sunset. The silver lining? Additional clouds and nearby rain will keep temperatures below normal for most of the next seven days.

Rain chances will dip slightly for Tuesday and Wednesday with highs hovering on either side of 90°. We don’t anticipate any one day being a washout, but scattered pockets of storm activity will form due to the heat and humidity, mainly in the afternoon and evening hours.

This weather pattern looks to continue as we move through the entire workweek and even this upcoming next weekend; afternoon highs will warm into the 80s under a partly to mostly cloudy sky with the possibility of and rain and storm each day.

Scattered showers and storms possible all week long... won't rain every moment of every day!

Tropics Update: The NHC continues to track Hurricane Danielle and Tropical Storm Earl. Thankfully, neither will impact Alabama (or even threaten the United States). Danielle is slowly moving north and east across the Atlantic Ocean while Earl continues its movement northwest, just north of Puerto Rico. The forecasted path of Earl has it staying in the Atlantic Ocean, generally moving just south of Bermuda, strengthening as a Hurricane as it treks across the Atlantic Ocean.

The NHC is also watching a tropical wave forming off the coast of Africa... that area is given a 30% chance of development over the next 5 days. The average peak to the Atlantic Tropical Hurricane Season is right around the corner (September 10th) so it’s no surprise that we have multiple systems to track!
