MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) – Last weekend’s good weather will continue for another day. After a cool start in the 40s, a mix of sun and cloud will send afternoon highs into the mid 70s.

Tomorrow will start quiet too. The sky will be mostly cloudy, but it will remain dry until lunchtime. It will be a windy to windy day with winds of 10-20 mph and gusts over 25-35 mph.

After lunchtime, we could see a few storms breaking out in western Alabama. Any rain or storms will remain confined to areas west of I-65 until approximately 5 p.m. After that, there will be increased rain and storm coverage from west to east during the evening and overnight.

Rain and thunderstorms are likely late Tuesday and Tuesday evening.

This line of showers and thunderstorms will have the potential to produce damaging winds, very heavy rain, hail and a few tornadoes. The highest threat of seeing strong and severe storms will be west of the I-65 corridor. Still, everyone in the WSFA 12 News viewing area will need to be on a weather alert from Tuesday evening through Wednesday at sunrise.

Once this major storm system clears the area early Wednesday, we will begin to dry out. Skies will become partly cloudy with afternoon highs warming to the lower 70s on Wednesday.

The rest of the week and the coming weekend are expected to be dry and cooler than normal. Highs will be mostly in the 60s Thursday through Sunday with plenty of sunshine each afternoon. For perspective, the average high at the end of March is 73-74 degrees.

Temperatures will drop later this week.

Overnight lows will drop into the lower 40s most nights during this period. There will be a good portion of 30s Saturday night and Sunday night. Widespread frost is not expected, but scattered frost in rural and low-lying areas will certainly be possible.
