Quiet now through Wednesday, then a cold front brings rain and chilly temperatures

Christmas Day looks to be cold, but dry!

An hour-by-hour look at your forecast, now through Christmas!

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Calm weather will dominate the forecast for the next couple of days before our next cold front arrives Wednesday night. Tonight is mostly clear, quiet and calm... a seasonable evening with lows dipping down into the 30s (but remaining above freezing) is expected, so exactly what December should feel like in Alabama.

We’ll stay dry Tuesday and Wednesday as well, but temperatures will return to the 60s.

Wednesday night, our next cold front arrives.

Rain is likely Wednesday and into the first half of Thursday. Right now, it looks like we’ll be dry by Christmas Eve evening...

Severe weather is not anticipated. Neither is snow, though we are watching for the possibilities of a few flurries on the back side of this system. Chances are very low this would happen!

Following that cold front, models remain in good agreement on a very cold shot of air. Temperatures will bottom out below freezing by Christmas morning, then stay in the 40s Christmas afternoon. It will be a great holiday to cozy up by the fire in your new Christmas sweater!

Mild, for now... wet weather arrives late Wednesday and then we turn much colder by Christmas!
