Cold front to arrive Tuesday

Until then, a normal summertime pattern is in place Sunday and Monday

Cooler weather on the way?

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Let’s start with the near-term forecast. Monday will be similar to Sunday. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop in the afternoon and evening hours, but it won’t be a washout - about 40% of you will see rain. Highs will reach the low 90s later in the afternoon.

By Tuesday, a cold front will sweep into central and south Alabama and bring an increase in storm activity. How this cold front impacts you the rest of the week depends on where you are in the state.

For central Alabama, cooler, drier air will move in behind the front, so rain chances will stay in the 20-30% range for the rest of the week. Temperatures will only top out in the 80s for most each afternoon.

For south Alabama, the front will stall overhead, therefore increasing rain chances for the end of the week. Scattered to numerous showers and storms are possible with rain coverage closer to 60%. Temperatures will likely stay in the 80s for south Alabama, as well, thanks to an increase in rain and cloud cover.
