MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Friday we are tracking waves of showers and storms. This is thanks to a low pressure system forming along the stationary front moving moisture into the region from the Gulf of Mexico.

Clouds will be in abundance on Friday with the waves of rain and storms. Highs will struggle to warm into the 80s. Winds will be out of the east around 5 to 10 mph with wind gusts as high as 20 mph. Rain will linger into Friday night with lows hovering in the 70s with winds staying noticeable.

Saturday and Sunday will feature partly to mostly cloudy skies. Afternoon highs both days this weekend will hover in the 80s with the muggy factor remaining sticky. Overnight lows this weekend will hover in the lower 70s under partly to mostly cloudy skies and a lingering shower or storm possible.

Monday we are tracking a cold front that will move through the region. That will keep rain and storm chances in the forecast for the start to next week. Afternoon highs will remain in the mid to upper 80s for Monday under partly to mostly sunny skies. Lows will drop into the 60s Monday night behind the cold front with a few clouds.
