Sunny, warm and dry for now

Scattered showers return late Thursday

Cold tonight, warm tomorrow and a look at our next rain...

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A warm, sunny day is in progress across the state; afternoon temperatures will soar into the 68-73 degree range across the southern half of the state. Temperatures will cool quickly this evening; we’ll drop from the mid 70s into the mid 50s quickly.

Wednesday will be our nicest day of the week. A cool, dry morning will give way to blue sky and a sunny afternoon. Temperatures will rise from the upper 30s in the morning to the mid 70s by afternoon. Thursday is no slouch either; we expect an increase in clouds and a small rain chance, but most will be cloudy and mainly dry with a high in the mid 70s again.

The forecast becomes much more complicated Thursday night and beyond, though. A front will stall just north of us and stay there through most of this week and into the weekend.

This front will waffle back and forth a couple of times. When that happens, it will rain. For our area, we think the most likely time for that is Thursday night into Friday. Friday looks like the wettest day of the week.

For the weekend, the front goes north. That will mean rain chances favor the northern part of the state and Tennessee. We’ll maintain the mention of a few isolated showers for the southern half of the state, but the majority of the rain will probably stay north of here.

So, for us, the weekend forecast is for a cloudy, warm couple of days with only a small risk of a quick splash of rain.

Partly to mostly cloudy skies and warm temps headline the upcoming weekend.
