MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Two issues could arise early Wednesday. Both are longshots, but could cause some headaches, so we’ll mention them - just in case they come to pass. First - freezing fog. With temperatures near freezing early Wednesday and fog in the air, there could be some isolated slick spots on bridges and overpasses. Secondly, a weak system will squeeze out a few isolated, light pockets of precipitation.
We’ll say up front - most of you will stay dry. This will be a very spotty situation. But, what falls from the sky will be important. If its drizzle, ice pellets or snow flakes, it will be too light to cause any issues. The one thing we’ll need to watch - if this were to fall as freezing drizzle, we could have a few slick spots develop.
Again, most of us are just dry. But, a few isolated icy spots could develop on some bridges and overpasses. Don’t cancel any plans, just slow down on the bridges and pay extra attention.
Temperatures warm well above freezing by mid-morning, en route to an afternoon high in the lower 50s.
Thursday will be the nicest day of the next week as highs head for 60 under mainly sunny skies. A cold front will swing through Thursday night into Friday, which will end the brief stint with the 60s.
We’ll be back in the lower and middle 50s for Friday, Saturday and Sunday with a healthy amount of sunshine.
As that front pushes through, it’s possible that we see a few showers late Thursday night into the morning hours of Friday. Outside of that rain chance, there really isn’t much in the precipitation department over the next week.
