First Alert: Turning sunnier soon, then warmer!

The gloomy clouds and chilly temperatures will slowly fade later this week...

Amanda's Monday evening update

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - After a weekend filled with widespread rain and bone-chilling temperatures, we have our sights on a drier (and hopefully warmer) forecast ahead!

As of Monday evening, the clouds have yet to clear our region and it’s still cold... most towns got stuck in the 40s for highs.

The same upper low that brought us a soaker of a weekend will continue to support cloud cover through the early evening; while patchy drizzle cannot be ruled out, we’re done with the heavy rain.

Change begins to pop into the forecast by Tuesday.

First, it’s a clear and cold start to our day, but sunshine will warm us up into the lower 50s by the afternoon.

We stay dry and quiet through at least Wednesday, and that gives us a good opportunity to warm into the upper 50s and even low 60s by the middle of the week.

Our next system starts to develop out toward our west by Thursday... a few showers Thursday will become widespread rain into Thursday night, and rain appears to be a good bet into Friday as well.
