MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Another frosty night is underway in central and south Alabama - temperatures will drop into the 32-40 degree range by sunrise Saturday. That means that *most* of our area will stay above freezing, but it will be cold enough for frost in many places. Cover or bring tender plants and flowers indoors, if possible. This will not be cold enough to worry about pipes bursting.
The warm-up kicks in this weekend! Saturday will bring upper 60s under partly cloudy skies. Then, Easter morning, it will be cold in the upper 30s and lower 40s. If you have church or other Easter morning plans, be sure to dress warmly! You’ll certainly be able to shed the layers by the afternoon, however - highs will be in the lower 70s under sunny skies.
Beyond Easter, temperatures will only continue rising. We’ll be in the upper 70s Monday, then move into the lower 80s Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
It will stay completely dry through Wednesday with a good deal of sunshine. By Thursday we will be watching a system approach from the west, which will bring a chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms with it.
With all this dry weather in the near-term, we’re in for incredibly high pollen counts. The main allergens are maple, oak, juniper, and grass. Might we suggest a car wash and keeping the allergy medication and tissues handy?
