DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Tonight will be a touch cooler than last night with clear skies and upper 50s to low 60s across the whole Tri-State.
Tuesday will be absolute beautiful and feel even better! Highs will peak in the middle 80s under mostly sunny skies.
Wednesday is when the winds start to pick up a bit out of the North. Morning lows will start in the low 60s and afternoon highs will peak in the low 80s.
Thursday will be a bit gusty and have a 20% chance for rain during the evening and overnight hours. Highs will be in the upper 70s due to additional cloud cover and the cool, northerly winds. Some high schools will be playing their football games on Thursday instead of Friday due to increased rain chances Friday.
Friday’s forecast will be highly dependent on the track of Ian, but at this point it looks like rain and gusty winds will be possible. Most of the rain will be confined to the eastern half of our viewing area (AL counties touching the Chattahoochee River and to the East), but rainfall totals will likely only be around 1-2 inches at this point. Gusty winds up to 40mph will be possible, but most of us won’t see sustained winds that high. Both wind gusts and rainfall totals will increase if the storm moves farther west. Highs will only be in the middle 70s.
Saturday and Sunday will gradually clear us out and warm us up, but we will still be well below seasonable norms with highs in the upper 70s and low 80s.
Monday takes us to the low and middle 80s with mainly sunny skies.
