Cold start to Easter Sunday, but the afternoon will be pleasant!

Watch for your hourly Easter forecast!

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Temperatures warmed up nicely today! Overall, it was still cooler than normal - highs are normally in the middle 70s this time of year - but it still felt much warmer than the past couple of days. More warmth is in store for Easter, but we have to get through another cold morning.

Frost is possible yet again Easter morning as temperatures will be in the upper 30s and lower 40s. If you plan to go to a sunrise service or hunt eggs first thing, you’ll want a coat.

You’ll certainly be able to shed the layers by the afternoon, however! Easter Sunday’s high temperatures will be in the low and middle 70s. It will also be beautiful with sunny skies.

Beyond Easter, temperatures will only continue rising. We’ll be in the upper 70s Monday, then move into the 80s by Tuesday.

It will stay completely dry through Tuesday with a good deal of sunshine. We deserve this calm weather, but the dry weather will also increase pollen counts and irritate allergies.

On Wednesday, daytime heating could cause a few showers to pop up. Many of us will still stay dry, however, with rain chances at 20%.

By Thursday, a system will arrive from the west, bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms.
