MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Alabama’s weather is on cruise control this week - no hurricanes, thunderstorms, rain, snow, ice, locusts or anything else of note. After last week, we’ll take it.
Highs will jump a couple of degrees for both Wednesday and Thursday around 83-85, but the humidity will not return to the oppressive levels it was at over the weekend into yesterday.
Skies will be entirely sunny Wednesday and mostly sunny to partly cloudy on Thursday. Then comes the second -- and much more noticeable -- cold front of the week late Thursday night.
That front will also come through dry, but it will have a much more substantial impact on our temperatures and humidity. There will be no rebounding into the 80s behind that front come Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Highs will struggle to get above 70 degrees both Friday and Saturday despite partly cloudy to mainly sunny skies. Some areas north of U.S. 80 will likely hang out in the upper 60s both days! During the overnight hours it will be down-right chilly...temps will fall into the mid-40s Friday night and upper 40s Saturday night.
Some of the rural and low-lying locations will probably fall into the lower 40s by Saturday morning. Meanwhile, up in North Alabama there will be some upper 30s and perhaps some patchy frost!
There will also be no rebounding in the humidity department; it’s likely we wind up seeing our lowest dew points of the season Friday and Saturday!
Regarding rain -- well, it still looks very probable that we don’t see a drop of it through at least the end of the day next Monday! Enjoy the sunshine, y’all!
