Weather Blog: Summer sometime

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Let's be honest with ourselves. These last few morning's have been downright comfortable. And while we're being honest, I'll toss this tidbit out there. It's not going to last much longer. Hotter and more humid conditions will steadily creep back into Alabama this week. Eventually, the ramped up moisture will lead to isolated thunderstorms. But "eventually" may have to wait longer than some would like...

TODAY: Morning temps in the lower and middle 60s will be replaced by lower 90s as we head into afternoon. For many, that's a slight increase in temperatures from yesterday. Rain chances will be zip as skies remain mainly sunny to partly cloudy.

For those of you looking for lush yards and gardens, you'll have to manually water for the next few days. Not looking like rain is in our future any time soon.

REST OF THE WEEK: A ridge of high pressure still centered off to our west will expand in our direction in the coming days. That will mean we'll be adding a few degrees each day all the way into the start of the weekend.

The expansion of the ridge will suppress coverage of rain and storms, offering a continuation of dry weather through the rest of the week. Temperatures by Friday will rise into the upper 90s. Humidity values should support heat index readings at or above 100 degrees. Isolated storms return in our 7-Day by late weekend into early next week, although rain coverage will be far from widespread.
