MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A storm system will move into the region from the west, increasing rain and thunderstorm chances overnight and into the day on Monday. Showers and a few thunderstorms are in the forecast to start the work and school week. A few storms could pack a punch with damaging winds and hail, the tornado threat during the day Monday is low but not zero. Highs will top out in the 70s with breezy winds.
We will keep with a lingering shower or storm through the afternoon Monday, but the whole system is expected to exit by Monday night. Lows will hover in the 60s overnight with clouds thinning.
