DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Today will be mainly sunny and very hot once again as high temperatures peak in the middle and upper 90s. Those that reach the upper 90s will likely break records for this date (for reference, Dothan’s record high for September 22nd is 95 degrees). Make sure to follow heat safety guidelines if you have any outdoor plans! These include drinking plenty of water, wearing loose-fitting clothing, and taking frequent breaks if you’re going to be outside for an extended period of time.

A cold front will push into the region tonight. A couple showers will be possible out ahead of the frontal boundary during the evening hours. With the front not expected to push out until sunrise, overnight lows will remain mild in the upper 60s and low 70s.

Friday will feel a lot more like early fall with “cooler” and drier air filtering in behind the aforementioned front. Highs will drop to the middle and upper 80s as mainly sunny skies prevail again.

Saturday will also feature sunshine and a couple high clouds. Expect to take another trip into the mid and upper 80s after starting off the morning cooler in the low and mid 60s.

Sunday will have a 30% chance for showers during the PM hours as another cold front approaches the Tri-State from the north. Highs will climb back into the lower 90s.

This front will push through during the morning hours on Monday. Partly cloudy skies will prevail to kick off a new work week as most locations top out near the 90-degree mark during the afternoon hours.

Tuesday and Wednesday will feature a return to very nice weather with mainly sunny skies. Another shot of cooler air behind our second cold front will result in highs dropping back to the middle and upper 80s both days.
