MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A classic January pattern unfolds over the next few days - expect a mainly sunny sky, dry weather and cool temperatures Wednesday and Thursday. Nights and mornings will be chilly, with overnight lows dropping into the 28-35 degree range. Both afternoons will be sunny but cool, with highs in the 54-60 degree range.

Clouds thicken Thursday night into Friday and we can’t rule out a small amount of light rain. Most computer model guidance keeps that moisture away from us. Other guidance brings us some light rain. Either way, it will be very minor if we even see any rainfall. We’ll put a 20-30% in for Friday and adjust as we get closer.

Behind that system will be even colder air for the weekend. We’re going to be just as cold as we were this past weekend with overnight lows down in the 20s. Afternoon highs will range from the 40s on Saturday to well into the 50s on Sunday.

With a slight breeze Friday night, we’re likely talking wind chills in the teens during the overnight into Saturday morning. This will be about as cold as it has felt all winter long.

There are pretty good signs for a warming trend once we head into the first week of February. Temperatures likely return to the 60s beginning Monday, but the warmer air could be accompanied by some rain at times next week.
