MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - While it doesn’t have a name, there is a disturbance down in the Gulf of Mexico will influence our weather over the next couple of days. It will send plenty of cloud cover and even a few showers and storms our way... today and Thursday look rather cloudy with about a 40% coverage of rain. That doesn’t mean it rains everywhere, and it won’t rain all day.

Tonight and tomorrow should be mostly dry, though a shower or storm cannot be totally ruled out.

Highs will be in the low to mid 80s Thursday. That’s going to be another day to add to the recent stretch of below average weather here in central and south Alabama.

The disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico should move away from our area to the east by Friday. The result will be more sunshine back in the forecast for Friday, the weekend and into early next week.

Most days will feature partly cloudy skies with a mix of sun and clouds. A day or two, especially this weekend, could even end up on the mostly sunny side. That’s mainly due to the humidity levels dropping back down a bit.

Look for more humid conditions Thursday, before things become comfortable by early June standards starting Friday. There really isn’t a jump in the humidity in the forecast from Friday through early next week.

Every day starting Friday has 10-20% coverage of rain... while there chances are obviously very low, they aren’t quite zero so don’t be surprised if a quick moving downpour happens where you live. We think most days starting Friday will be dry, but can’t totally rule out a summertime shower or storm.

Temperatures will become the main storyline heading into the first weekend of June... Highs will reach the upper 80s Friday, then it’s all lower 90s from there. Temperatures near either side of 90° are expected. Fortunately for us the humidity values will be low enough to keep heat index values in check.
