Another fall front followed by another surge of unseasonably warm air

We’ll go from the 40s Saturday morning to the 80s next week

Tracking cooler air heading our way!

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) -Another unseasonably warm day is underway! Our normal high temperature for this time of year is 78 degrees, but we have moved back into the 80s. However, temperatures will be below average tomorrow thanks to a strong cold front. Let’s dive into the details!

Under mostly sunny skies, temperatures are currently rising into the lower 80s. Dewpoints are in the 60s, so humidity isn’t bad.

Tonight, lows will fall into the upper 50s for most yet again.

Then, the second fall cold front of the week starts to move through...

This will make temperatures noticeably cooler for the day on Friday! Highs will only range from the upper 60s in the northwest to around 71 near Montgomery. Depending on how fast or slow the front sweeps through Alabama, parts of the Wiregrass could approach 80 degrees before cool air arrives.

The front will not bring any rain or thunderstorms, but it will likely bring additional cloud cover for a portion of the day on Friday. Still, there will be sunshine in the mix as well area-wide. It’ll also be breezy at times.

Temps will quickly fall Friday evening, making for a cool forecast for any high school football games. Game time temps will likely start in the low to mid 60s before falling into the low to mid 50s by the final whistle.

The cool Friday evening weather will also make a perfect night for Fall activities like for a bonfire, Halloween movie marathon or pumpkin carving!

By Saturday morning, temperatures will drop into the upper 40s for many under clear skies. If you have early morning Saturday plans, you’ll need a jacket!

The cool weather doesn’t last forever. 80-degree temperatures return to start next week.

Skies will feature a mix of sun and clouds with a slight uptick in humidity by Monday, but it won’t be anything overly sticky by any means. Rain chances are not zero, but they are still below 20% through the entirety of next week.
