Heat builds later this week

Record warmth possible Thursday through Saturday

Get ready, it will feel like Summer this week: 90° is possible!

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A few isolated pockets of rain will help us kick off our Tuesday morning. Most will stay dry, and those who get rain won’t get very much. Sunshine returns later in the day, with temperatures soaring into the 80s. Expect more warm, pleasant and (mainly) dry weather over the next few days, with temperatures in the upper 70s and lower 80s Tuesday and Wednesday.

The rain chance stays very low over the next several days - not quite zero, but rather low.

As a strong upper ridge builds, temperatures will skyrocket to near record levels Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Upper 80s are a near-certainty, and some of the hotter spots could hit 90 degrees. Record highs could be in jeopardy as we get this small taste of Summer...in late March!
