MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Scattered showers from earlier in the day are now gone, but we are still tracking chilly and cloudy conditions now through early tomorrow morning. Under mostly cloudy sky, our temperatures will be slow to drop at first... as clearing begins, lows will drop into the low and mid 30s by the time we kick start our Wednesday. Since most surfaces are wet, we could see areas of patchy fog possible for those who hit the roadways early in the day; winds will remain out of the northwest around 5 mph, making for a chilly feeling start to the day on Wednesday.

Mostly sunny conditions are back for Wednesday as high pressure moves into the region. Afternoon highs will warm back into the upper 50s to lower 60s with northwest winds around 5 mph.

Wednesday night we will see clear skies continue with lows falling back into the 30s region wide and calm winds.

More sunshine is expected for Thursday. Afternoon highs will remain in the upper 50s to lower 60s. Mostly clear skies will be around Thursday night. That will allow for overnight lows to again fall into the upper 30s to lower 40s.

Christmas Eve on Friday we will again see mainly sunny skies. Highs are back into the upper 60s to lower 70s. Friday night, partly cloudy skies will be in place with overnight lows in the middle 50s.

Christmas Day is looking warm for Central and South Alabama. Afternoon highs on Saturday will warm into the lower 70s under partly to mostly sunny skies. Clouds will build becoming partly cloudy by Saturday night and overnight lows will remain mild, in the middle 50s.
