MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A long stretch of dry weather begins tomorrow. Other than few showers tonight in far south Alabama, most of the area will dodge the drops. The cool air, however, will NOT be dodged. We’ll drop into the 40s tonight, warm only into the upper 50s to lower 60s Saturday, then drop back into the upper 30s Saturday night. Frost is unlikely in most of our area, but we’ll watch the northern counties closely.
Cool, dry weather dominates the forecast for next week. Afternoon temperatures stay in the 60s and lower 70s, with overnight temperatures in the upper 30s to mid 40s, and we see no sign of any rain, much less severe weather.
Tornado surveys continue across central Alabama - so far, the National Weather Service in Birmingham has confirmed EF-2 damage in Elmore County, EF-1 damage in Chilton/Coosa, and an additional Coosa County tornado producing EF-0 damage. EMA officials also confirm damage in western Autauga County consistent with a tornado, but that has yet to be rated. More surveys will be done in the days ahead, and we’ll almost certainly add more tornadoes to those already on the list.
