Tracking big changes to the forecast
A cold front will bring a few showers Friday into Saturday; then cooler, less humid air to Alabama.
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A few more days of warmer than average weather is in the forecast. Highs both Thursday and Friday will remain in the upper 80s under partly to mostly sunny skies. Overnight lows will fall into the middle 60s during the end of this week.
The muggy factor will also be present, giving the region more of a summer feel to the air, not mid-fall. The good news is we are tracking a major change to the forecast, all thanks to a front that will pass across the region Friday night into Saturday morning.
The much-anticipated cold front, to knock us back into fall weather, will bring a few showers to the region. These showers will be very widespread overnight Friday into Saturday with rainfall amounts being rather light.
Once the front exits Alabama, the rain and clouds will quickly depart during the day Saturday. By Saturday afternoon, it will be mostly sunny, a bit breezy, and feeling much more like fall. Sunny skies will prevail on Sunday with highs only topping out in the 70s and overnight lows dipping into the 40s and 50s.
Moving into the upcoming work and school week, we can expect highs to remain in the lower 70s Monday with partly cloudy skies and overnight lows in the lower 50s.
We start to see the temperatures creep back up again by mid-week. Highs on Tuesday will be back into the upper 70s with overnight lows in the middle to upper 50s. By Wednesday, expect highs back in the lower 80s with partly cloudy skies.
