MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Living in Alabama during the month of October can be interesting... at times, it can feel like extended summer (which is probably why a lot of people like living here) and other times it can truly feel like fall. Over the next 7 days, we will get a mix of both of those weather patterns; so if you enjoy warm 80s and sunshine, this week is for you! If you want more of the crisp mornings and comfortably cool afternoon, you will only have to wait a few more days to get that.

Mother Nature has provided us with a week of summer-like warmth featuring no rain, a mix of sun and clouds and highs that are above average in the mid and upper 80s. Perfect conditions to mow the grass, rake the leaves, put the Halloween decorations up, etc.! As long as you don’t mind a little bit of extra warmth... temperature will be a few degrees warmer than normal.

A fall cold front will then push through on Saturday, putting an end to the toasty temperatures.

Some rain showers are possible along it Friday night and Saturday, but widespread rain and thunderstorms are not expected. It’s possible many will avoid rain altogether.

Once the front exits the region, the rain threat will end. That will give way to more sunshine for Sunday and next week with much cooler temperatures and non-existent humidity.

Highs on Saturday will likely still reach the 80s, but will only hit the 70s come Sunday and next week.

Mid and upper 80s stick around until the weekend rolls around!

Overnight lows will fall well down into the 50s to make for some very comfortable sleeping weather!
