Warming up this weekend, so when will wet weather return?

Mild 70s are expected both Saturday and Sunday, but rain could be back before Thanksgiving

Calm and warm weekend

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - After a week of comfortably cool conditions, we are gradually adding a bit more warmth back to the forecast. Highs Friday climbed into the 70s, as opposed to the 60s that were around earlier this week. Now, the 70s are in our 7 Day Forecast quite a bit. However, two separate cold fronts are in the forecast, and they will impact us in different ways...

The large area of high pressure that has been keeping us completely sunny is beginning to break down and slide off towards the northeast. This will bring a slight uptick in moisture to the atmosphere, and a few clouds could linger through Saturday.

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 bring rain and thunderstorms. Some storms could potentially be strong, so 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!
