Hot and humid weather persists this weekend with heat of the day showers and storms possible. The activity will be isolated in nature so most of us will stay dry. Consider yourself lucky if you get a passing shower. Continue to water the lawn and garden! Highs in the lower 90s and feels like temperatures in the middle 90s.
Our next rain maker is centered across the Midwest and will cause showers and storms to fire to our north on Monday and shift southward across Alabama by Monday afternoon. Best chance is on Tuesday when the actual front arrives. A few strong to severe storms will be possible both days. Rain totals by Tuesday night could exceed 1" in some places. As always not everyone will get a lot of rain, but something is better than nothing.
The other joy in the long term forecast is the return of less humid air and slightly cooler temperatures from Wednesday through Friday. Lows in the lower to middle 60s and highs in the middle and upper 80s.
