FIRST ALERT: Rain & storms continue through early Friday morning
Cold front pushes the wet weather east of the area early Friday, leaving colder temperatures in its wake.
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Showers and storms continue to track across Central and South Alabama, all thanks to a cold front traversing the southern states. While the severe threat is trending lower, a few strong storms are still not out of the question overnight. Threats continue to include damaging winds up to 60 mph and isolated tornadoes.
The rain and storm activity will exit the state very early on Friday, leaving colder air to rush into the area in its wake. Temperatures will stay in the upper 40s to middle 50s all day.
A strong northwest breeze will make it feel even colder during the day Friday, but the wind are forecast to calm a bit by Friday night and that will allow for temperatures to plunge into the 20s and 30s across the region. Expect a freezing start to the weekend, Saturday morning.
We will remain cool and dry through the weekend, with afternoon highs in the 50s and 60s and overnight lows in the 30s. Overall it will be a pleasant and seasonal weekend across the region. Great for any outdoor or travel plans.
The cool and seasonal weather will not last long as we quickly warm back up next week. We are back into the middle 70s on Presidents Day under partly to mostly sunny skies, overnight lows Monday night are also warmer, in the 50s and 60s.
Tuesday and Wednesday we really see temperatures soar. Highs will climb into the upper 70s to lower 80s under partly to mostly cloudy conditions. A shower or two is possible both Tuesday and Wednesday due to the increase in heat and moisture values. Overnight lows as we move through midweek will hover in the 50s and 60s.
Temperatures are trying to trend every so slightly cooler on Thursday, back into the middle to lower 70s. We are still a week away, and temperatures will continue to be adjusted as we push closer to late week, next week. There also looks to be a low end chance for a few showers on next Thursday.
