MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) – The weather pattern is becoming a little more active as the week begins. Clouds will thicken overnight and lows will be in the lower 60s. A few showers will move into the region tonight before more widespread rainfall occurs Monday into Tuesday. In fact, we’ll give you one First warning for two rounds of off and on rain and storms this week. Several bouts of wet and stormy weather are heading our way from Monday to Tuesday.

Monday will see increasing clouds and highs in the 70s. Rain chances will increase throughout the day and peak as we move into the evening and overnight. Lows will be mild in the 60s.

A few storms could have strong impacts later Monday and into Tuesday. Key threats include devastating wind gusts exceeding 60 miles per hour, heavy rain with localized flooding, and hail. The risk of tornadoes is low, but not zero.

This is all due to the several heavy rains expected to hit the area early this work and school week.
