First Alert: Very warm weather Wednesday
Rain chances ramp up later in the week and into the weekend
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The sky will start off cloudy with areas of fog early in the day but gradually transition with a bit more sunshine... because of that, temperatures start off mild in the morning and will soar into the upper 80s both today and tomorrow! That is not far from record territory.
A slight uptick in rain chances will occur Thursday with highs remaining very warm in the mid 80s.
We aren’t expecting much, but a few showers and storms are possible. Those rain chances are only at 30% for now. Higher chances for rain exist in the forecast for Friday and Easter weekend. Unfortunately it looks rather wet, gloomy and substantially cooler for at least part of the holiday weekend.
Currently the rain chances are around 50-60% from Friday through Saturday night. However, it’s possible these chances rise as we get closer. The good news is the decrease in rain chances for Easter itself. We’ve dropped the chance of wet weather to 30% for this forecast update.
Temperatures will be cooler with the clouds and rain around. Look for highs in the 70s on Friday and the 60s Saturday and Sunday. In fact, Saturday’s highs may stay in the 50s in some spots.
While some storms will be in the mix Friday, the weekend’s activity should be only plain rain showers We don’t see a thunderstorm risk thanks to the much cooler temperatures that will be in place.
Next week looks quiet and really nice as high pressure builds into the Deep South. The first few days of next week will feature plenty of sunshine and highs in the 70s. Lows will be comfortable in the 50s.
