MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - After an active weather day Saturday, storms are back in the forecast this Sunday.

It's feeling muggy out there as temperatures are falling into the 70s. Showers are possible through the overnight hours, as well.

Sunday, showers will start early, then storms will fire in the afternoon. Similar to Saturday, some storms could be strong with frequent lightning, damaging winds and heavy downpours. It won't rain on everyone, but a good helping of you will feel raindrops, so have a backup option to your outdoor plans.

Rain coverage slowly decreases and temperatures slowly warm through next week.

Tropical Update (as of 10 p.m. Saturday):

Tropical Storm Beryl has continued to weaken and now has sustained winds of 45 m.p.h. Beryl is heading towards an area of drier air and stronger wind shear, and therefore will continue to weaken over the next 48 hours. The National Hurricane Center expects Beryl to become a tropical depression soon after it crosses the Lesser Antilles.

Tropical Depression Three is slowly becoming better organized. Winds are still at 35 m.p.h., but it is expected to gradually strengthen into a tropical storm overnight. It it now stationary off the coast of North Carolina and will sit there the next two days. By Tuesday, it will start to quickly move off to the northeast, continue to strengthen, and become extratropical by the middle of next week. Besides large surf and rip current risks for North Carolina and the mid-Atlantic states, this system is not a threat to land.
