Getting warmer and drying out

Record warmth possible Thursday through Saturday

More sunshine today, or are we tracking storms? ☀️⛈️

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Under a mix of sun and clouds today, we are easily seeing temperatures in the 70s and low 80s already this afternoon; almost everyone across central and south Alabama will remain mostly dry and warm today, and by late March standards this is still a good 10°+ above average!

Expect more warm, pleasant and (mainly) dry weather over the next few days... high temperatures will be in the upper 70s and lower 80s both Tuesday and Wednesday.

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

Warming up to near record-breaking temps later this week!

That means a rogue shower can’t be ruled out, but the majority of our area won’t see any accumulating, impactful rain.

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°... record highs could be in jeopardy as we get this small taste of Summer - but in late March!
