First Alert: Remaining mainly sunny, dry through the weekend
Tracking above average heat as we closeout Summer and move into Fall.
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Friday will again feature lots of sunshine with a few fair weather clouds. Highs will top out on either side of 90 degrees. Winds will be out of the east around 5 to 10 mph becoming light to calm as we push into Friday night. Lows will hover in the middle to upper 60s through the night with mostly clear skies.
The last weekend of Summer is also looking very pleasant. Sunshine and fair weather clouds will be featured in the forecast both Saturday and Sunday as high pressure continues to hover across the southeast and Midwest. Highs this weekend will remain in the upper 80s to lower 90s and overnight lows will hover in the upper 60s.
The moisture in the air will begin to rise a bit this weekend and that trend will continue slightly into next week, while not as ridiculous feeling, it will be slightly more humid as we approach Sunday and move through the week ahead.
Mostly to partly sunny skies will continue into next week and the afternoon highs will rise even more for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
Temperatures for the last few days of Summer will be in the lower 90s to start next week and by midweek we will see the mercury rise into the middle to upper 90s. Rain chances remain near zero and a few clouds remaining in the forecast. Overnight lows next week will be on either side of 70 degrees with calm conditions.
Thursday is the First Day of Fall. The Autumn Equinox occurs at 8:03 PM. As we welcome in the new season it will be above average when it comes to the heat. Highs will warm into the middle to upper 90s under mostly to partly sunny skies and the warm trend looks to continue as we closeout next week.
