MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The work week ahead will feature more heat, humidity and daily rain and storm chances, as this summertime pattern remains in place across Alabama.

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will all feature a mix of sun and clouds. Afternoon highs will climb into the 80s and 90s Monday, then lower to middle 80s Tuesday and Wednesday, with the humid factor staying around. Afternoon and evening showers and storms will be possible due to the heat and humidity. Just a FIRST ALERT heads up, that any storm we see over the next week could pack a punch with gusty winds, heavy rain, frequent lightning and small hail.

A cold front will try to sweep into the area Tuesday into Wednesday, but will stall, thus keeping rain/storm chances through midweek. Overnight lows will remain mild, in the 60s and 70s, with a few showers/storms lingering through the evenings and nights.

As we move into Thursday and Friday, it will continue to be warm, with highs in the 80s and 90s. Shower and thunderstorm chances are again likely Thursday due to the heat and humidity, with a few storms lingering into the evening and night time hours. Friday is trying to trend drier, as most of the rain showers look to impact far South Alabama. Lows will hover in the 60s and 70s.

There is indication that a front will try and sweep across the region this upcoming weekend, bringing down rain chances and also trying to cool temperatures a bit. With that being said, we are still as week away, and the forecast will be adjusted, both rain chances and temperatures, as we get new forecast model data into the First Alert Weather center.
