MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Sunshine continues to be the dominate force in our forecast before, during and even after our Christmas holiday! Highs today made it into lower 60s, but we are just warming up (literally)... both Christmas Eve day and Christmas will be milder than normal. So hopefully you asked Santa for some new flip flops and shorts, because the above average holiday temperatures continue into early next week as well.

Tonight we will remain mostly clear with overnight lows in the middle to upper 30s along with calm winds.
