MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Goodbye record-breaking heat, hello above average temps? Yup... it may still be warmer than normal by October standards, but we are no longer talking about highs in the triple digits, or even the 90s! Every little bit helps, and thankfully I think we will see another drop in temperatures by the upcoming weekend; before we get ahead of ourselves though we do still have some warm days to contend with.
As we speak, a cold front is moving through Alabama! It brought a good helping of showers to the northern half of the state Monday, but now closer to home we saw only scattered showers and storms.
The front has also brought a nice drop in both temperature and humidity.
Overnight lows dip into the low/mid 60s, so stepping out the door the next few mornings is going to be really nice! Cooler, crisp mornings will be followed up by comfortably warm afternoons; highs each day for the rest of the workweek look to climb into the upper 80s.
We be keeping an eye on another front that looks to push through the area closer to the weekend. As of right now, it doesn’t look to pack too much of a punch when it comes to rain chances, BUT it likely will allow temperatures to dip a bit... more seasonable 50s in the AM and low 80s during the afternoon are expected both Saturday and Sunday - not too bad at all!
