Workweek ends on a warm note; weekend brings a big cool down!
Fall cold front brings in much cooler air by the weekend
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Big changes are coming soon... even though 90% of us will continue to see sunshine, our temperatures are going to drop big time by the weekend, and you’ll notice the changes are early as Saturday! Until then, we still have another day with summer-like warmth. Highs on Friday will skyrocket into the mid and upper 80s; some places could even reach 90 degrees.
It will be warm for Friday night high school football games across the state, with temperatures dropping through the 70s. Humidity levels will be noticeable, but not overwhelming.
The much-anticipated fall cold front arrives Friday night. It will bring a thin line of showers late Friday night into early Saturday morning. Any rain is out of Alabama by 8-9 a.m. at the latest. No thunderstorms or severe weather are in the cards with this front.
Once the front clears your neighborhood, the clouds will begin to depart. By Saturday afternoon, it should be mostly sunny, breezy and feeling much more like fall in the lower 70s. Mostly sunny skies will prevail on Sunday with highs once again in the lower 70s.
Moving into the upcoming work and school week, we can expect highs to remain in the lower 70s on Monday under partly to mostly cloudy skies. We do warm up a bit into the upper 70s and even lower 80s beyond that.
The nights will be where the truly chilly air will exist. Upper 40s and lower 50s are forecast for three consecutive nights beginning Saturday night.
Dry weather will prevail for at least the length of the 7 day forecast outside of showers associated with Friday night’s cold front.
