(WALA) - Hi there,

I’m FOX10 Chief Meteorologist Jason Smith with a look at your forecast.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms continued across the Gulf Coast this afternoon, with daytime highs resting in the mid-to-upper 80s. Heading into this evening, skies will dry out and we will drop down into the mid-70s.

Tomorrow is the first day of school for a lot of kids across the Gulf Coast! Make sure to pack that rain jacket and umbrella, as rain chances will continue into tomorrow. While chances remain scattered, they increase heading into the afternoon. Be cautious that some thunderstorms could contain heavier downpours. Daytime highs will continue in the mid-to-upper 80s.

This trend of off-and-on showers/t’storms, along with warmer temperatures and high humidity, will continue into next week.

The tropics are quiet for the next 5 days.

Have a great evening!
