Above average temps continue through the weekend, More rain next week

Highs are in the 80s for the last weekend of February

Weekend Forecast: Mostly cloudy but WARM!

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A mild, quiet and mostly cloudy Friday night is in store! Besides a few isolated showers, most of our area is staying dry. Temperatures are slowly falling through the 70s this evening, and lows tonight will land on near 60 degrees. A bit of patchy fog could develop tonight through tomorrow morning, so allow extra time on the roads if out and about.

For the weekend, the frontal boundary will remain well to our north. Only a few isolated showers are possible courtesy of the warmth and increased humidity we’re expecting. Similar to today, most of us should stay quiet.

Lower 80s, more clouds than sun and a couple of isolated showers highlight the weekend.

The bigger story for the weekend will be afternoon highs heading into the lower 80s - and with dew points in the 60s, it will feel anything but February-like!

The forecast remains a bit murky heading into next week as models disagree substantially on when a couple rounds of rain will move through the region.

For now, it still appears as though we will see a round of rain late Sunday night into Monday as a cold front arrives from the northwest. A few thunderstorms are possible, but heavy rain and severe weather are really not anticipated.

Rain chances rise early next week with those probabilities running around 50-60% both Monday and Tuesday.

Monday night through Wednesday are a bit up in the air with models split on whether or not we will see rain. Due to the high degree of uncertainty and continued model variability, we will maintain a 50% chance of rain Tuesday and a low-end 30% chance of showers come Wednesday.

Models have come into better agreement regarding temperatures for next week...

Highs will probably be stuck in the upper 60s Monday, the middle 60s Tuesday and the upper 60s Wednesday as cooler air pushes in -- with or without any rain.
