Colder air is filtering into the state

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - After a warm day with highs near 70°, a cool-down is now underway. Temperatures are falling through the 60s this evening. Overnight lows will be cooler than last night in the mid 40s.

Slightly cooler - but still fairly seasonable - air stays in place Wednesday; we will stay in the upper 50s and lower 60s. A weak upper wave moves through on Wednesday, but it will be moisture-starved, and any rain that falls from these will be very spotty and very light. Most will stay dry!
