First Alert: Tracking summer-like pattern this week
Isolated to scattered rain and storm chances are possible each day this week.
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Temperatures, humidity and rain chances are all on the rise as we move through the work and school week, as we transition into a more summer-like pattern across Alabama.
Sunday has been a warm day across Central and South Alabama. Temperatures rose well into the 80s under a mix of sun and clouds along with a south breeze. The humid factor has been noticeable and will remain in place this week.
Tonight, clouds will thicken and lows will hover in the 60s. A shower or two will be possible, but most look to remain dry.
The weather pattern stays fairly consistent as we push through the upcoming work and school week, as we keep with this early preview of summer-like weather.
Monday will feature scattered showers and storms. Afternoon highs will hover in the middle to upper 80s under a mix of sun and clouds. The humid factor remains in place, making it feel warmer when outside. A lingering shower or storm will be possible through the evening and into the night. Lows Monday night will hover in the 60s under cloudy skies.
Tuesday all the way through next weekend will feature heat and humidity. Highs will warm well into the upper 80s to lower 90s, factor in the muggy factor and it will make it feel warmer to be outside.
Each afternoon, during the work and school week, will feature widely scattered to isolated showers or storms, typical of what we see during the summer months, as splash and dash showers form across the region.
We will also be watching pulses of energy that are forecast to move in our direction, but a lot of those will diminish in coverage by the time they move in our region. Overnight lows will also remain mild, in the 60s over the week ahead, with many nights remaining dry.
Rain chances try to trend down for Mother’s Day weekend. Temperatures will remain warm, in the 80s to near 90 degrees each day this upcoming weekend and the humidity staying put. Lows will hover in the 60s Friday and Saturday night. One or two showers are possible this weekend, but like this week, coverage will be rather hit-or-miss.
