Cloudy start to a slightly cooler weekend

A big warm-up is on the way next week!

Sprinkle possible early Saturday, then dry rest of weekend

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Temperatures were comfortable Friday but skies were mostly cloudy. Does cloud cover stick around over the weekend? What about temperatures - do they stay warm? Let’s dive in!

Mostly cloudy skies will hang around overnight and could be accompanied by a few isolated showers. An area of low pressure is heading southeastward toward the northern Gulf of Mexico, and that will keep most of the rain to our south. We can’t totally rule out a few sprinkles or perhaps a passing shower early Saturday morning, but most of our area will stay dry.

The clouds will break apart a bit by Saturday afternoon, leading to a partly cloudy and slightly cooler day in the middle 60s.

The second half of the weekend is all sunshine and just a touch below average. Temperatures will top out in the middle 60s once again.

Temperatures head back toward 70 degrees again by Monday under sunny skies. Then, the warm-up doesn’t stop there! By the middle of next week, highs will be in the middle and upper 70s. Some lower 80s even look possible by the end of next week.

Skies will generally feature a mix of sun and clouds each afternoon beginning Tuesday.

Total rainfall over the next week will total zero here in Central Alabama.
