Bright, sunny and warm weekend ahead
First Alert: Rain returns Monday night into Tuesday
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Expect a pleasant stretch of sunny, dry and warm weather for Alabama through the weekend! Sunshine will dominate the sky over the state each day; afternoon highs should rocket into the mid 80s with overnight temperatures in the comfortably cool 50s. Rain won’t be an issue at any point between now and at least late Monday.
The warmest day will likely be Monday. That’s when we have a solid shot at topping out in the upper 80s. If you’re looking for a 90-degree day, a few of the warmer spots could get there, but most of us will stay in the upper 80s.
Then comes the next chance of rain for the region...
This will not be a heavy rain or strong storm issue for us, but some showers and storms do appear possible early next week. We’ve trimmed timing back to pretty much only Tuesday now as models are coming into better alignment on when rain will be possible. The latest data suggest the highest rain chance likely arrives Tuesday morning through early Tuesday afternoon, with another stretch of dry, pleasant weather for much of the second half of next week.
It won’t rain all day long Tuesday, but scattered showers and a few storms will be around in all likelihood as a cold front pushes across the region.
Behind this system will be another round of beautiful weather. It will be quiet with ample sunshine and slightly cooler temperatures in the upper 70s and lower 80s. Overnight lows behind the cold front may dip into the upper 40s for a couple of nights, but no significant cold will impact Alabama.
