Warm now but cooler by the weekend!

We’re not breaking records, but temps are still a few degree above average...

Amanda: Wednesday evening forecast update

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - When we say that a forecast is not one size fits all, we mean it. Right now, some points in central Alabama are hanging in the upper 70s, but far southern portions of the state are in the low 90s! Obviously, the 70s are closer to normal than the 90s, but I think a lot of people are just happy we are done breaking records. Thankfully, another drop in temperature is expected soon, and this time it could actually make it feel like Fall here in Alabama...

A few isolated downpours are possible today along, but coverage won’t be high enough to say everyone has an opportunity to get wet; most of our area will stay dry, but any showers that do develop will probably be brief and then dissipate by sunset.

Temperatures will continue to warm through the rest of the workweek... Thursday and Friday both feature upper 80s and lower 90s.

A cold front will arrive just in time for the weekend! A few showers could develop ahead of the front, though overall rain totals won’t be significant...

Above average now, but cooling off a bit this weekend!

Temperatures, however, will noticeably drop. Highs will likely stay in the low 80s through the weekend and into early next week - exactly where they should be for this time of year! Our average high temperature is 80°. Low-end rain chances also stay in the forecast into early next week.
