First Alert: Tracking a dry and cool weekend
The cool temperatures will not last long, a big warm-up is expected as we move through the week ahead.
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The weekend will be a partly to mostly sunny, dry and cool. We anticipate temperatures to warm into the mid and upper 50s Saturday with a light breeze and a partly to mostly clear sky. Lows bottom out in the mid and upper 30s Sunday morning before rebounding into the mid 60s Sunday afternoon. Cool and dry is the forecast for all of the Mardi Gras celebrations scheduled for our area.
The forecast for next week is unsettled. There are a few systems that we expect to graze us with a small chance of a passing shower or storm, so we will leave a small rain chance in the forecast for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. But, the majority of those days will be dry or mainly dry, and any rain that falls seems like it would be on the light and spotty side. If those systems trend just a little southward, though, the rain could be heavier - we’ll keep an eye on new data and adjust the forecast as necessary!
The very clear part of the forecast for next week is the warm-up! Temperatures will skyrocket into the 75-80 degree range for most of the week, with overnight temperatures well above freezing. An Early Spring? Sure seems that way, although I wouldn’t plant anything just yet.
