Toasty temps this week ahead of first fall cold front
Temperatures will turn sharply cooler this weekend
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The dry and sunny weather will march right along today... our sky continues to be entirely sunny with highs in the mid and upper 80s. Wind speeds will be a bit lower than yesterday around 10 mph during the afternoon hours. A few clouds will arrive tomorrow afternoon, with more then in the mix on Thursday; both days will still be entirely dry despite the increase in cloudiness.
High temperatures will remain in the upper 80s through the rest of the workweek before a major shift comes our way!
While upper 80s may seem rather toasty, it’s important to note the humidity levels will remain in check all week long. That means the upper 80s will feel tolerable despite them being a few degrees above normal for early October.
Friday will once again feature upper 80s, however there is a chance of a shower in central and south Alabama Thursday night, Friday and Friday night as a pair of fall cold fronts pass through the state. Unfortunately, many of us will likely stay dry despite the fronts.
While there will be a lack of rain with those fronts, there will not be a lack of fall-like air. Temperatures will drop quite a bit behind them this weekend as highs drop into the 70s and lows fall into the lower 50s. Pair a breeze with those temperatures and it will actually look and feel like fall! Saturday will be particularly breezy.
Temperatures will moderate into the upper 70s and lower 80s next week with plenty of sunshine. The breeze we have this weekend will disappear next week as high pressure edges closer to the Deep South.
