Weather Blog: Wet and warm start to the week

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - It's going to be an interesting wave of weather over the course of the next week. We're no stranger to wild swings in temperatures this time of year. And the next 7 days should test our mettle in that regard. Warm and wet weather dominates the forecast for the next few days. But there's a cold snap and another warmup to follow as we head into the weekend...

TODAY: A frontal boundary is providing the focus for scattered showers across mainly the northern half of Alabama this morning. That boundary and some upper level help will sag southward through the day, helping spread scattered showers into the area. Rain won't be particularly widespread or all that heavy, but the off/on showers will be with us for awhile.

Troy's Christmas parade is scheduled for 6pm this evening, and a few showers will be a player in that forecast.

Highs will range from the 60s across our northern counties to the low 70s into south Alabama.

REST OF THE WEEK: A secondary surge of showers continues our wet forecast into Tuesday as a few storms develop into south Alabama tomorrow afternoon. This will help aid in advancing overall rain amounts with heaviest totals favoring south Alabama.

We anticipate wet weather moving out early Wednesday as colder air spills back into the region. Highs Thursday will only get into the lower 50s and lows Friday morning will fall into the upper 20s and lower 30s. It doesn't last long, however, as warmer air quickly surges back northward into the weekend. Highs Saturday should flirt with 70 degrees for the Raycom Media Camellia Bowl. Another round of showers/storms will arrive with a cold front Sunday.
