MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Scattered rain and perhaps a rumble of thunder or two will sweep across the state before midnight. Many of you stay dry, but a few spots could get a random shower or storm.

A few storms are possible after 5 p.m. Tuesday.

It will turn sunny, very comfortable, much cooler, and quite windy for Wednesday behind the front.

Highs will only reach the middle and upper 70s under an entirely blue sky. The wind may make things slightly less than ideal, though.

Wind gusts of 25-35 mph are likely Wednesday afternoon.

Widespread wind gusts of 20-30 mph are likely at times Wednesday. It’ll be a “hang onto those hats” kind of day across the state!

Fortunately the wind doesn’t last with calmer conditions expected for Thursday under sunny skies. A second cold front will move through Friday evening, bringing another round of showers to the area. This system isn’t a severe storm setup - the storm threat is very minimal with that front with no real “storm energy” set to be in place.
