MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Our run of dry weather rolls on! We’ve had one day of rain in the last 19, and that was back on September 20. Unfortunately, our prospects for rain are grim in the week ahead. The pattern is a warm, sunny and dry one - and that pattern is locked firmly into place. Tomorrow will be no exception; temperatures will warm into the upper 70s and lower 80s with far more sun than clouds.

The heat and humidity will rise slightly over the second half of next week. This will lead to a few more clouds and a slightly less comfortable feel to the air. Otherwise, no major changes anytime soon!

Temperatures will top out in the lower 80s this weekend and remain there next week. A few mid 80s are possible tomorrow and late next week, but there are no 90s in the forecast at this time. Low temperatures will stay comfortable to cool in the 50s for the foreseeable future!
