First Alert: Tracking showers & thunderstorms today
Heavy rain, frequent lightning and gusty winds, are all threats with any shower or storm we see today.
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - We are tracking a weakening boundary that is currently pushing across the region as we type. Showers and storm have formed along the boundary producing loud thunderstorms with frequent lightning, heavy rain and gusty winds.
We aren’t really expecting much more than some passing showers and storms. The chance of that activity will be from 4 a.m. north of Montgomery through the early afternoon down in the Wiregrass. Most should only see 1-2 hours or so of rain as the line comes through.
We don’t really see much of a severe weather threat with this system given its weakening state. However, we can’t totally rule out a strong to severe storm or two with highs winds.
We will break out into a mix of sun and clouds this afternoon behind the morning rain. Highs will warm back into the lower 80s. It will continue to be breezy just like it will be today with wind speeds of 10-20 mph.
Slightly cooler air will push in for Sunday and Monday with plenty of cloud cover. Sunday will be mostly cloudy and dry with highs in the lower 70s. A chance of rain and a few thunderstorms returns Sunday night and Monday. The good news is this won’t produce severe weather.
A surge of warmth will follow Monday’s rain with highs soaring well into the 80s much of next week. Tuesday and most of Wednesday will be dry before another chance of showers and storms to end next week.
