Clear, breezy and cold for the next few days

Temperatures are getting ready to take a major dive...

Wait... it's going to get HOW cold tonight?!

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Rain has finally come to an end thanks to a cold front that passed through Alabama earlier today. At our warmest point Sunday, highs climbed into the upper 40s and low/mid 50s. A brisk, northwest breeze is ushering in drier, cooler air into our atmosphere; that is going to allow temperatures to remain cold during the day, and get very chilly at night.

Winds will remain gusty at times from the northwest this afternoon and evening with speeds gusting 15-25 mph at times; this breeze will gradually calm as we head into the early morning hours of our MLK Day.

We expect a clear sky tonight, which will allow for really effective cooling: lows will be at or below 32°, with many spots dipping into the mid/upper 20s.

We're chilly, and staying cold for the next few days...

A strong and large area of high pressure will keeps our forecast quiet over the next few days...

The stout north breeze will make it feel even colder, and it looks like temperatures will struggle big time on Monday and Tuesday as highs are only expected to climb into the mid 40s at best.
