First Alert: Warmer than normal temperatures sticking around
The spring-like forecast continues through midweek, with more changes ahead late week.
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The warmth continues Thursday with afternoon highs again climbing into the 70s and 80s under partly to mostly cloudy sky. Winds will remain out of the southwest around 5 to 10 mph, so it will be a breezy afternoon but not as windy as our Wednesday was. Thursday also includes the chance for a few isolated pockets of rain, but nothing widespread or impactful is anticipated... lows Thursday night will remain mild in the 60s with a lingering shower or two possible.
A frontal boundary will approach Alabama from the northwest on Friday; this does look to bring much colder air to the northern third of the state, but not so much for central or southern counties. We expect the front will stay just north of us, leaving our area on the warmer side of the boundary. With that being said, we are only predicting a slight cool down into the 70s to end the week, but just know if that boundary sinks further south than expected we could drop afternoon and overnight low temperatures a few degrees.
Looking at the weekend, Saturday and Sunday look to remain warm. Highs will climb into the 70s both days this weekend with some locations flirting with 80 degrees. Clouds remain in place mixed with some sunshine. Lows will hover on either side of 60 degrees both Saturday and Sunday night.
Sunday and Monday we will mention the chance for a few showers both days, but the best coverage of rain, right now, looks to be after sunset on Monday and into the middle part of next week.
The warmth does continue Monday with afternoon highs in the 70s, but the forecast does call for a bit of a cool down by mid-week next week. With that being said, we are not expecting any Arctic air anytime soon for Alabama.
