MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - It was nice while it lasted, wasn’t it? Our stretch of cooler and drier weather is coming to an end tomorrow. Given the calendar, its possible that the last few days were our last cool, dry days until September or October. You’ll notice an uptick in humidity Wednesday; this increase in moisture will also kick off a few scattered showers and thunderstorms over the next two afternoons. It won’t rain on everyone and it won’t rain all day. We’re expecting around 40% of our area to have rain on both Wednesday and Thursday.

Rain chances decrease substantially for Friday, the weekend and early next week. We can’t totally rule out a shower or storm any day, but the chance of it happening is only 10-20%.

Warming up and getting muggier... highs are seasonably where they should be as we head into June!

Temperatures will be in the lower 80s Thursday before heading into the upper 80s each afternoon starting Friday. Some lower 90s will very much be possible as the heat builds across the Deep South.

The humidity will also be rising. Much of the next week will feature humid to even muggy conditions, unlike what we’ve been enjoying for the last week. This will keep overnights warmer and less comfortable in the middle to upper 60s.
