MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - We will be tracking the return of showers and thunderstorms this weekend, but it won’t be a total washout. Saturday has some uncertainty associated with it thanks to a complex pattern that will engulf the Deep South over the weekend. A large portion of the area will likely stay dry. However, those south of U.S. Highway 80 could see rain spread in during the afternoon and evening.

A few thunderstorms are possible in far southern portions of Alabama Saturday, but, this is a low confidence setup. It’s possible that most everyone stays entirely dry, while it is also possible some rain on the northern side of the thunderstorm complex spreads into the southern half of the state.

Otherwise skies will be partly to mostly cloudy with highs in the lower 80s. Another chance of wet weather is in the forecast Saturday night into the first half of Sunday. This system will bring scattered rain and thunderstorms with a very small risk of a strong to severe storm.

Things will dry out by lunchtime Sunday as breezy conditions settle in to Central Alabama. Temperatures will stay in the mid-70s as slightly cooler air filters in from the northwest.

Next week looks quiet and nice with temperatures in the low 70s Monday, then the low 80s each day after that. There will be a pair of cool nights in the middle to upper 40s to start next week. This may be the last time we get that chilly until the fall, so soak it up Monday morning and Tuesday morning!

The end of next week may feature another low-end rain and storm chance, mainly Friday going into next weekend. Stay tuned for additional information regarding this as we get closer and models get a better grasp on what exactly will happen. Right now it does not look like much though.
