MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Brrrrr! This morning was cold, but temperatures haven’t really rebounded this afternoon... a strong northerly wind along with a mostly cloudy sky is helping to keep us in the low/mid 40s right now, but it feels even colder than that! Unfortunately the wind will be going nowhere today; sustained winds out of the north will be at 10-20 mph with gusts remaining in the 20-30 mph window.
All and all, it’s a recipe for a miserable day if you are not bundling up when you go outside. It will feel like we’re in the 30s for the rest of the day Monday.
Clouds will break tonight, allowing temperatures to fall to either side of 30 degrees. It will continue to be breezy, sending wind chills into the 20s and perhaps upper teens as we start our day Tuesday.
That will be one of the coldest starts to a day we’ve had all winter long!
Tuesday will again be chilly (and still breezy) despite plenty of sunshine -- highs will only reach the lower 50s.
After dipping into the upper 20s Tuesday night, a rebound in temperatures will occur for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Highs will head for the middle to upper 50s on Wednesday, middle 60s on Thursday and be around 60 on Friday.
While Wednesday and Thursday will be dry, rain chances will return with another storm system for Friday.
Forecast models are in better agreement that rain showers will be possible from Thursday night through Saturday evening. It won’t rain that entire time, heavy rain is not currently expected and severe weather is not looking like a concern.
It will also turn breezy again to end the week with another stretch of gusts pushing 20-30 mph looking increasingly possible.
Temperatures are a bit trickier for this period as models do not agree on that side of things. For now we’ve kept highs in the lower 50s next weekend, but that is subject to change as we get closer.
