Tracking clouds, showers and breezy conditions to end the week
A strong area of low pressure will keep the weather more “winter-like” as we move towards the weekend.
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Tonight, we will see cloudy skies along with pockets of light rain and drizzle. Temperatures will fall into the middle 50s. All this thanks to wrap around moisture from the area of low pressure that is sitting to our northwest.
Friday, we will see more clouds than sunshine across South and Central Alabama. This is all thanks to the area of low pressure stalling over the region. Highs Friday will hover in the 50s most of the day with very isolated pockets of rain. Winds will be out of the west around 10 to 15 mph with gusts as high as 20 mph at times. Giving way to a more “winter-like” feel to the forecast for Friday.
Friday night football games will be the coldest we have seen this season so far. Temperatures will be in the 50s with pockets of drizzle possible, clouds skies and a bit of a west breeze. Make sure you have the jackets and towels, as bleachers could be damp and cold.
Saturday we will start the day with plenty of clouds. Isolated showers will again be possible early Saturday. Highs will struggle to warm into the lower 60s with a west wind around 10 mph. Clouds will start to clear by Saturday night, good news for trick-or-treaters. Temperatures will cool into the upper 40s to lower 50s with a light wind.
Sunshine returns by Halloween on Sunday. All thanks to that pesky low pressure finally exiting the region. Highs will also rebound back into the upper 60s to lower 70s by the afternoon. Trick-or-Treating Sunday night is looking pleasant, just on the chilly side. Lows will again fall into the 40s and 50s, so a jacket will be needed for those heading outside.
High pressure returns to the forecast as we welcome in November. Monday we are back to mostly sunny skies with highs in the lower 70s and overnight lows in the 40s and 50s under clear skies.
Tuesday and Wednesday are looking much the same, mainly sunny skies with afternoon highs in the middle to lower 70s and overnight lows in the 40s and 50s.
Next Thursday, we are tracking our next front that looks to slide into the state. Clouds will increase and rain chances will likely return to the forecast as we move towards Friday. Highs will remain in the 70s for Thursday. We will keep a close eye on the cold front that looks to impact the region for the end of next week.
