MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - We were about 15 degrees cooler today than yesterday all due to a moisture deprived cold front that swept through early this morning. Battling a cool northwesterly breeze, temperatures slowly climbed through the day to an eventual high in the mid 70s this afternoon.
Looking ahead, skies will remain clear tonight as cool, dry air continues to flow into the state. Conditions will be chilly tonight in the mid 40s.
After a cool start, Friday will be lovely and mild by the afternoon. Through much of the morning a light jacket may be needed ,but once we get into the afternoon conditions will be comfortable for most. Highs tomorrow afternoon will reach the mid to upper 70s.
Dry, fair weather will follow us into the weekend. Saturday will mirror Friday in a lot of ways. A chilly morning in the 40s will eventually wind up as a great afternoon with highs near 80 degrees. Saturday will have more clouds than Friday especially towards the nighttime hours as our next storm system arrives.
Saturday looks to be a dry day but rain will begin to impact our area overnight in to Sunday morning. Rain coverage will begin isolated and then turn widespread through the day Sunday and into Sunday night. We'll continue with elevated rain chances after the weekend.
Looking at the data right now, next week looks pretty soggy with a chance of rain each day. So enjoy the dry and sunny weather now because you're going to need your umbrella for a while beginning Sunday.
