DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Another round of scattered showers and storms can be expected today, mainly during the afternoon hours. Some of them will be capable of dropping lots of rain in a short amount of time, so don’t be surprised to see some isolated ponding of water on the roads where the heaviest showers and storms occur. Beyond that, the strongest storms could produce some gusty winds. Highs will be seasonable as most locations top out near the 90 degree mark.
Rain chances will go up to 60% on Thursday as a frontal boundary sags southward into the Tri-State. Once again, shower and storm activity will be most likely during the PM hours. Heavy rain and isolated flash flooding will again be a concern. Additionally, a few of the storms could become severe, with damaging wind gusts up to 60 mph possible. We’ll take another trip up to the low 90s from the mid 70s.
Friday will also have a 60% chance for showers and storms. With a little more cloud cover around compared to the two previous days, the majority of us should only make it up to the upper 80s for those high temperatures to close out the work week.
The weekend should be drier as a ridge settles in over the Southeast. Rain chances will drop to 30% for Saturday and Sunday, so only a couple folks will get a shower or storm. With more sunshine and dry time expected both days, highs will return to the low 90s.
Rain chances will go back up to 40% Monday and Tuesday. Temperatures won’t change to start off next week; highs will stay in the low 90s as lows remain mild but seasonable in the mid 70s.
