First Alert: Temperatures warm ahead of midweek rain/storms
Highs climb well into the 70s this week ahead of a cold front that brings rain and storms to the area mid-to-late week.
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - If you thought today was warm, just wait, both afternoon highs and overnight lows will climb as we start the week. The warming trend is ahead of a cold front that will move rain and storms back into Central and South Alabama Wednesday into Thursday.
Tonight, expect lows to lower into the 30s and 40s with light winds. Patchy, dense, fog is possible overnight into the start of Monday.
Monday will feature plenty of sunshine with just a few fair weather clouds. Afternoon highs will soar into the 60s and 70s with overnight lows hovering in the 40s under fair skies.
Sun and clouds are in the forecast Tuesday with afternoon highs again warming to either side of 70 degrees. Clouds blanket the area Tuesday night with lows in the 50s.
Wet weather looks to return to Central and South Alabama on Wednesday into Thursday all thanks to a low pressure and cold front that will push across the area. That front does look to bring rain and storms back to the region.
Highs Wednesday will soar well into the 70s ahead of the front, with partly to mostly cloudy skies expected during the day. Rain and a few thunderstorms are possible as we push towards the afternoon hours. Showers are forecast to build through Wednesday night with cloudy skies and mild low temperatures in the 50s.
This system looks to linger across the area during the morning Thursday with cloudy skies and more wet weather expected. Highs will remain in the 60s and 70s. As of this typing, the system is expected to clear the area late Thursday with cooler overnight lows in its wake, dipping into the 40s.
By next Friday, temperatures will cool into the lower 60s with partly cloudy skies, but we will be tracking another quick moving system that looks to bring more precipitation to the area late Friday into next Saturday. Lows Friday night will be in the 30s and 40s with a shower or two possible.
Clouds thin as we start next weekend with drying conditions expected on Saturday, with afternoon highs will be much cooler in the 50s with breezy winds and overnight lows dropping into the 30s. Sunday remains dry but chilly. Highs will warm into the 50s and 60s under a fair sky.
