MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Rain chances remain limited through the weekend, as not everyone will see showers and storms each day. Sky conditions will be partly cloudy each afternoon with some areas seeing more clouds than sun. Afternoon highs through the weekend will rise into the upper 80s to near 90 degrees, with a bit of a humid factor. Overnight lows will remain around 70 degrees each night through the weekend.

There will be isolated to widely scattered rain and storm activity, that will develop each day on radar through Sunday, but coverage is never widespread enough, to say it rains all day or even rains on everyone! A few stronger storms are possible, with rumbles of thunder and some gusty wind will be possible.

The pattern changes behind a front that is expected to move through the area early next week. Lower humidity values and a lot more sunshine are expected next week all behind the front. Afternoon highs will remain in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees. Overnight lows will be slightly cooler in the middle 60s early next week.

Tracking the Tropics: No issues for Alabama or the Gulf of Mexico but Hurricane Lee and Hurricane Margot are both still churning out in the Atlantic. Large surf and dangerous rip currents will occur along the East Coast through the weekend, and there is a good chance that additional impacts, some possibly significant, affect New England and southeastern Canada.

There is an additional area still being monitored for future tropical development way out in the eastern Atlantic. It has a “high” 90% chance of becoming the next storm of the year. The next name on the list is Nigel. The well above normal Atlantic hurricane season is continuing to march right along.
