DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Meteorologist Andrew Clarke has your daily walk the dog forecast sponsored by Wet Pets of Dothan!

Expect scattered showers and storms to develop and move through the region during the afternoon hours today as a cold front pushes in from the northwest. Some storms could be on the strong side with gusty winds, small hail, and heavy rain possible. We’ll make it up to the low 90s prior to any shower and storm activity forming, so overall it will be another hot and humid day. The good news is though, if your area gets rained on later in the day, you’ll likely see a nice reprieve from the heat and humidity!

With all this being said, the best time to take your dog out for a walk will be during the morning and early afternoon hours before showers and storms move in with the front. Remember, it will be hot and humid before the rain arrives, so make sure to take water along for you and your pup to stay cool while outdoors. Have a great Friday!
