First Alert: Active pattern returns later this week

First Alert: Mostly dry by sunrise

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A weak, fast-moving upper trough pivots overhead tonight; it’ll drop some pockets of light to moderate rain overnight. No storms, nothing heavy, just some scattered rain.

Scattered light rain is a good bet tonight.

Personally, I’m hoping for rain to help rinse away some pollen! We’ll drop into the 40s tonight, so expect a chilly start to Tuesday.

Any rain will depart by sunrise, though - we don’t expect any appreciable rain to fall tomorrow. Expect more sun than clouds, and afternoon temperatures in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

Wednesday will be the nicest day of the week, we anticipate a brilliant supply of April sunshine and afternoon temperatures soaring into the mid 70s.

Clouds increase on Thursday, and some scattered showers and storms become possible late Thursday and into Friday. Then, another storm system could bring more showers and rumbles over the upcoming weekend. At this time, we don’t see any obvious severe weather setups, but with the large supply of warm, moisture-laden air and some strong jet stream dynamics close by, we’ll have to watch closely.
