MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Skies have been mostly clear all day and that will continue tonight. We'll host only a few clouds overhead tonight allowing for a cool setting in the upper 40s to low 50s overnight.

Expect more sunshine tomorrow but not as warm temperatures. The good news is we'll still be mild in the mid to upper 70s. Sunday will start off cool but by midday expect comfortable conditions.

Upper level ridging will build in after the weekend as surface high pressure shifts over the western Atlantic. This combo will lead to a warming trend that will push afternoon highs into the 80s. The duo will remain in place for much of the workweek. This duo will keep any threat of rain away until late in the week going into next weekend.

Next weekend is already looking wet. Moisture will return to the state and likely cause a decent coverage of showers and storms as early as late Friday/early Saturday. The good news is severe weather isn't too concerning at the moment.
