MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - More sunshine, less clouds and rain, and warmer temperatures are headlining our forecast. After a cold, cloudy and dreary week overall, the weather is shifting gears towards average and eventually above average temperatures.
First, however, we have to get through some bitterly cold overnight temperatures. Tonight will feature temperatures dropping all the way into the middle 20s by early Saturday morning. Drip pipes, cover plants, and bring pets inside!
Skies will be sunny both days this weekend as temperatures start to climb! Highs will be in the middle to upper 50s Saturday, then move into the 60s Sunday.
The warming trend doesn’t stop there...
By the middle of next week, the 70s are back in the forecast!
The warmer temperatures don’t come with all sunshine, however. There are two upcoming chances for rain:
The first arrives Sunday night into the first half of Monday. A weak cold front will bring some scattered showers, but it won’t be a complete washout.
Another chance of rain is in the forecast late Thursday, Thursday night and Friday. Details need to be ironed out with that system, but rain chances look low at this time!
