MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - What a nice way to kick off the first week of 2021... under a mostly sunny to partly cloudy sky, our afternoon temperature have easily climbed into the upper 50s and low 60s. By early January standards, that’s as close to average as you can get.
A weak and moisture-starved cold front will push through this evening, with nothing more than an isolated sprinkle possible. Otherwise skies will be partly cloudy into the overnight hours; patchy fog can’t be ruled out once again in a few spots heading into Tuesday morning.
Quiet weather continues for Tuesday and Wednesday with high temperatures hovering right around 60 degrees.
Clouds will build on Wednesday, though, ahead of our next legitimate chance of rain. Showers are expected late Wednesday night into the first half of Thursday.
Some pesky light rain or drizzle may continue through much of the day Thursday as some residual low-level moisture hangs around the region. We are not expecting any thunderstorms, heavy rain or severe weather.
Clouds will hang tough for Friday as the system departs. Highs will be cooler both Thursday and Friday in the low to middle 50s.
A dry and seasonably cool weekend is still a good bet under partly cloudy skies. Temps will be in the 50s during the day and in the 30s at night.
Another cold front will swing in by Sunday night and Monday, probably bringing a shot at some rain showers to the area.
This is a quite a ways into the future, so we will watch it. At this time we are not expecting storms or severe weather.
