MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The rain ends this evening from west to east as a cold air mass begins to filter in. Skies will stay rather cloudy tonight, but that won’t prevent us from falling back into the upper 30s with a breeze to boot.

And hopefully 30-degree low temperatures are your thing because we’ve got plenty of them in the forecast heading into next week!

Under a mostly cloudy sky highs will only reach the lower 50s on Saturday. Some more sunshine will break out on Sunday, but it won’t help us out as highs will barely get above 50 degrees. Low temperatures Saturday night and Sunday night will be in the lower 30s; in fact, there could be plenty of upper 20s Sunday night the way the forecast is trending!

A mix of sun and clouds continues heading into next week and the start of spring. Temperatures eventually warm up with highs reaching the middle and upper 50s Monday, the lower 60s Tuesday and the lower 70s by Wednesday.

The 30s are back this weekend into next week.

Even with the afternoons warming up, the mornings will continue to be cold. Monday night will bring frosty conditions in the lower and middle 30s. Tuesday night we come up just a bit into the middle and upper 30s. After that there are no 30s on the horizon!

By the end of next week the afternoons will be up in the upper 70s to around 80 degrees. There will be a chance of showers and thunderstorms Friday and next week, though those chances aren’t too high at this point in time.
