First Alert: Tracking isolated showers/storms through Saturday
A cold front moves across the region Sunday into Monday, that will push away the rain chances and bring down the humidity for the week ahead.
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The warm, mostly cloudy and somewhat wet week continues as we move towards the weekend. The weather pattern remains much the same for the next few days. Meaning, there will be isolated to widely scattered showers and storms possible each day through Saturday. No one day is a washouts and widespread rain is not expected.
While sky conditions will remain on the cloudier side, some areas will still have the chance to bask in some sunshine, now through the start of the weekend. The humidity will remain elevated through the weekend alongside the rain chances we are tracking. It will not be the kind of humidity we had back in August, thankfully, but it will certainly be noticeable through early Sunday.
Temperatures will warm into the middle and upper 80s through the weekend. Exact temperatures in your area will be dependent upon cloud coverage and whether or not you see any rain or storm action.
The weather pattern looks to change a bit next week, as a front is expected to push through the area Sunday into Monday and drops humidity levels. This will result in mainly dry weather for most, if not all, of next week. Skies will feature a mix of sun and clouds each day with plenty of sunshine overall during the week ahead.
Temperatures next week will be in the upper 80s. There is a chance for some lower 90s at the beginning of the week, if there’s enough sunshine. Overnight lows will lower a touch, from around 70 degrees now, to the 60s next week.
Tracking the Tropics: It rather active out in the Atlantic Ocean, with two hurricanes and another named storm to soon develop. Fortunately, two of the systems will stay way out in the Atlantic Ocean: that’s Hurricane Margot and a system that will likely get the name Nigel sooner rather than later.
The other system is Hurricane Lee, and it will get eerily close to New England this weekend as it weakens. There are tropical storm and hurricane watches in effect for parts of New England as a result of this in anticipation of rain, wind and coastal impacts.
