Much cooler air has arrived

A Freeze Watch is in effect Friday morning

Getting chilly...

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - It was a jammed packed weather day - we experienced above average warmth, severe storms, and a 20°+ temperature drop all in just 12 hours. The threat for strong storms has come to an end, and shower’s have pretty much cleared the state as well. Now, cooler than normal temperatures are the big headline moving forward.

Colder air will continue to pour in during the evening and overnight hours, with temps in the upper 30s to lower 40s by tomorrow morning. Gusty winds will make it feel even colder in the low 30s. Brr!

Wind chills will be down near or below freezing Thursday morning.

Then, we won’t warm up much tomorrow afternoon. Highs will stay in the 50s all day! On top of that, a Wind Advisory is in effect for most of our area, and those extremely gusty winds will make it feel even colder.

It gets even colder Thursday night/ Friday morning with low temperatures in the low and middle 30s. A Freeze Watch has been issued for most of our area; widespread frost and a freeze in spots are anticipated.

Lows in the 30s are on the way to start April.
