Trending slightly warmer and wetter soon

Cold weather continues for both tonight and tomorrow

Warmer air coming soon; does rain return to the forecast, too?

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - We started the day in the mid 20s across our entire area, but despite plenty of bright sunshine temperatures have only managed to reach the low to mid 40s this afternoon. Throw in a very consistent and persistent north wind, and it will feel even colder! So far this month we have been both above and below average, so when do we get normal January temps in the forecast?

The short answer? Soon! We still have to get through another chilly night across Alabama before we see any signs of warming... many spots will dip into the mid to upper 20s again tonight.

Sunny, cool weather continues Wednesday, and then we start to transition a bit...

Our next storm system takes aim at the state Thursday, Thursday night and Friday; it will bring a batch of mainly light rain to the state.

We don’t expect any thunderstorms or severe weather due to a lack of warm, muggy air.

Cooler, drier air returns late Friday, Saturday and Sunday... at least we will see upper 50s for highs and 30s for lows, which is right on par with “normal” January temperatures.
