MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Another warm day is in the books! Montgomery reached 80 degrees Tuesday afternoon, a full 10 degrees above normal for the 17th of March. In case you’re wondering, the record high for this date is 86 degrees, set back on March 17, 2002.
A few isolated showers popped up in parts of the area, but these were few and far between. Most of us stayed dry, and we will again tomorrow and Thursday. It will be very warm both days, too.
There will be a few scattered showers roaming around the state at any given moment, but these will be light, brief and spotty.
Thursday will be exceptionally warm - we’re projecting an average high around 86°, and it is not out of the question that someone could see 90° Thursday afternoon. Coincidentally, the Spring Equinox is Thursday, marking the official arrival of Spring.
A cold front brings rain and thunderstorms through the state Friday and Saturday, followed by a change to noticeably cooler weather Sunday and into early next week.
