Warm-up on the way for the weekend

Two cold fronts on the way; how will they impact us?

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A bit of a warm-up begins from here! The 70s are likely over the next several days. However, two separate cold fronts are in the forecast, and they will impact us in different ways. Let’s dive in.

First things first, tonight will cool down into the 40s. Tomorrow mooring will be chilly, but not as cold as the past couple of mornings!

Tomorrow, the large area of high pressure that has been keeping us completely sunny will slide off to the northeast. This will bring a slight uptick in moisture to the atmosphere. The small amount of returning humidity probably won’t be noticeable, but that increase in moisture will lead to mostly sunny -- as opposed to completely sunny -- skies both Friday and Saturday.

Highs will head into the lower to middle 70s on Friday, then the middle 70s are likely for both days this weekend.

More clouds are expected for Sunday as a weak cold front moves across the state Sunday night. This front will be moisture starved, so we’re note expecting much in the way of rain chances out of this system.

This front will try to cool us down, but most of us will still stay in the 70s Monday. However, another front arrives Wednesday...

A stronger cold front will likely push in next Wednesday, bringing a good chance at rain and storms.

This second front will likely bring rain and thunderstorms. Some storms could potentially be string, and we’re watching it closely.

As of right now, the front is expected to clear the state by Thursday, so Thanksgiving should be dry and cool. If the front slows down, this would change the Thanksgiving forecast. We’ll keep you updated!
