Next front arrives Saturday, with mixed results

Weekend cooldown in store for MOST of us...but not everyone!

Cooler air arrives this weekend - for most of us!

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Just two more days are above average temperatures are left, then a cold front will bring some relief! Temperatures will jump to near 90° again tomorrow... that’s nearly 10° warmer than normal for this time of year.

By Friday night, a cold front will approach our area. It will bring the chance for showers Friday night and Saturday as it moves through, and behind it, cooler air will rush into almost all of Alabama. The front will stall just southeast of Montgomery, which will put most of our area on the relatively cool side of the front. For most of us, temperatures Saturday and Sunday afternoon will stay in the upper 70s to lower 80s - very nice! But, in the southeastern counties of the state, it will still be in the upper 80s.

Low-end rain chances will stick around for the rest of the weekend and into the middle of next week. Our next cold front arrives Wednesday!
