MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The most noticeable part of Alabama’s weather the past two days hasn’t been heat, cold or even rain - it’s been the wind! A very windy couple of days will continue into Tuesday and Wednesday; this wind will eventually die down by Thursday and Friday.

It will be a quiet and cool night... since humidity is low and there won’t be too many clouds, we cool off quickly and find our way back down into the upper 40s by morning. Another mostly sunny day is on the way tomorrow with highs a touch warmer in the middle and upper 70s.

Similar to what we saw on Sunday, it will be breezy again tomorrow. Wind speeds will be 10-20 mph with gusts of 20-30 mph.

No rain is in the forecast this week.

The wind relaxes a bit by Wednesday with the sunshine and below normal temperatures continuing. Highs will be in the middle to upper 70s once again; upper 70s are likely for everyone by Thursday under a mostly sunny sky.

The mornings all the way through Thursday will be on the cool to chilly side. Under mostly clear skies each night temperatures will bottom out in the upper 40s. Some mid 40s will occur in the typically colder locations like Selma, Greenville, Alexander City, Clanton, Marion, and Evergreen.

Highs are back in the 80s starting Friday as a warmer regime engulfs the Deep South. The warmer temperatures will be accompanied by an increase in humidity and subsequently rain chances.

Overnight temperatures will be cool to chilly through Thursday.

Friday should be dry, then chances for randomly scattered showers and thunderstorms enter the forecast starting Saturday. The upcoming weekend should not be a washout despite the uptick in rain chances. At most we’re talking hit or miss rain.

The warmer temps and chances for rain stick with us as we head into the second week of May. No severe weather is in the forecast as we see it right now.
