MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Today we will see mainly sunny skies. While a majority of the state of Alabama looks to see plenty of sunshine, parts of East Alabama have a chance to see a few clouds here or there.

Afternoon highs will top out in the middle to lower 60s, which is still below seasonal average for this time of the year. Winds will be out of the north around 5 to 10 mph.

Clouds are expected to push entirely out of the entire region by Saturday night, giving way to a chilly overnight period for the area. Lows will dip into the upper 30s to lower 40s, with northwest winds around 5 mph.

The sunshine will finally be in full force by Sunday. Afternoon highs will also rebound thanks to the sunny conditions, back into the upper 60s to lower 70s. Winds will be out of the north around 5 mph. Clear skies are expected Sunday night, giving us another chilly overnight period. Lows will dip into the upper 30s to lower 40s yet again.

Remember, we fall back this weekend. Daylight saving time ends early Sunday morning. While we gain an extra hour of sleep, we will see the sunset time become earlier in the evening. This time is also a great time to change the batteries in your smoke detectors and weather radios.

High pressure will move in this weekend and will remain in place through early next week. That means sunny conditions will continue for Monday with highs back into the lower to middle 70s. Overnight lows will dip into the middle to lower 40s.

Tuesday will also be dry and mostly sunny. Highs will warm back into the middle 70s, which is more seasonal for this time of the year. Lows will also creep back into the upper to middle 40s.
