Rain this evening, Dry and cooler to start the weekend
Low humidity, plenty of sun and highs in the 80s this weekend; hotter by Monday
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A cold front is controlling our weather for the near-term! Showers and storms are working their way across Central and South Alabama tonight. Once the front passes tonight, drier and cooler air will move into the state and make for a nice Memorial Day weekend.
Saturday will feature a mix of sun and clouds and noticeably cooler temperatures. Those in South Alabama may make it into the middle 80s, while some in our northern counties may stay in the 70s all day.
More sunshine returns for Sunday and Monday. Sunday will also be cooler in the lower 80s, then temperatures will be on either side of 90 degrees for Memorial Day.
The humidity will also be very low this weekend before rising again by Tuesday.
That rise in moisture will lead to some additional low chances for isolated to widely scattered showers and thunderstorms next week. No day features more than a 30-40% chance of rain at this point.
Highs next week will be in the upper 80s and low 90s with somewhat muggy conditions. It will feel more like summer!
