MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Get ready for a mild day with a bit of a breeze... there will be some more clouds in the sky today compared to the more abundant sunshine of Monday and Tuesday, but highs will still easily rise into the lower 70s. More 70s are expected as we get ready to round out the workweek; lower 70s tomorrow and the mid 70s for our Friday are anticipated, despite both days featuring a mostly cloudy sky.

The forecast is still relatively dry, too! But, more wet weather is expected by the first half of the weekend as a cold front pushes through. A few showers may develop after dark Friday, but coverage will stay pretty low through midnight.

Rain is a good bet Saturday and a second shot of rain is very possible Monday into Tuesday.

Friday overnight we will see additional scattered showers, but Saturday is when the coverage of rain and thunderstorms peaks.

Expect a solid chance at getting wet on Saturday with the cold front. It will still be unseasonably warm and humid as we reach the mid-70s ahead of any rain. Even with the warmth and humidity, we are not looking at a severe weather or widespread heavy rain event.

Rain and storms are likely Saturday, with cooler air for Sunday.

The front will push to our south Saturday night, which will end our chances for rain. The drier air behind the front should keep Sunday rain-free and much cooler in the upper 50s. Clouds will hang tough throughout the day.

A secondary wave could bring a renewed chance of plain rain showers Monday, Monday night and early Tuesday. The fine details regarding this system have been -- and continue to be -- a bit muddled.

We stay warm through Saturday.

Still, models do suggest some rain potential during this period. It won’t rain that entire time, but we’re including mid-range chances for rain from Monday through the first half of Tuesday.

Temperatures will remain much cooler heading into next week. Highs will only be in the 50s.
