Warm weather continues...for now

Rain returns Thursday night, then two cold shots await

Amanda: Tuesday forecast update

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Wednesday will be a quiet, warm day; highs climb into the 70s as sunshine becomes more abundant later on the afternoon.

We will mention a small chance of a sprinkle or shower, but any rain that falls will be brief and isolated - and mainly confined to the far southern counties of the state. For most of us, it’s just a dry, warm day.

By the end of the workweek, all eyes will be on our next cold front... it's timing is pretty great, too! Looks like this boundary arrives late Thursday, so the first half of the day doesn't really feature much rain; scattered showers form ahead of it and will bring rain to much of the state Thursday evening and Thursday night.

Seasonable next few days... then rain returns late Thursday!

The rain ends by sunrise Friday morning, and we turn sharply colder Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

There is growing evidence that we could see an even colder shot of air by next Tuesday, Wednesday and/or Thursday - stay tuned on that! Models are hinting at highs in the 40s/50s and lows dipping below freezing...
