MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Clouds will increase as we move into tonight as a quick moving disturbance rolls across the region. There is enough moisture in the atmosphere where a few locations could see showers this evening and into tonight. Lows will hover in the 50s overnight and winds will be out of the north around 5 to 10 mph with gusts upwards of 20 mph at times.

Monday we will keep with partly to mostly sunny skies and afternoon highs will warm into the middle 70s. Dry conditions are expected during the day and night Monday. Lows will hover around 50 degrees as we move into Tuesday morning.

Tuesday during the day, as of right now, looks dry. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy and afternoon highs will top out into the 70s and 80s. Rain chances do look to increase Tuesday evening and overnight. Scattered showers will be around the area during the night with lows hovering in the 50s and cloudy skies prevailing.

This will be the start of a rather unsettled weather pattern for the remainder of the week, as we track several disturbances that will move across Alabama, keeping with widely scattered showers in the forecast through the end of the week and into the weekend.

While not a washout everyday, just know rain chances will be in place Tuesday through Friday and even into next weekend. With that being said, it would be a good idea to keep the rain gear handy in case a shower moves over your community.
