DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Mostly sunny skies and very warm temperatures can be expected once again today as we take another trip up to the mid 90s for highs. Just like yesterday, if you have any outdoor plans, make sure to drink plenty of water, pile on the sunscreen, and take frequent breaks if needed!
We’ll start to shift away from hot and dry weather tomorrow as low-level moisture from the Gulf filters back into our area via southerly winds. This will translate to partly cloudy skies and a low-end (20%) chance for a shower or two during the afternoon hours. We’ll climb from the low 70s into the low 90s for highs.
Rain chances will go up significantly to 60-70% for Saturday and Sunday with the arrival of deeper low-level/tropical moisture. We’ll also see cloud cover increase area-wide as well. These two things (better chances for showers and storms and the addition of cloud cover) will help to cool us down substantially as highs drop back down to the mid and upper 80s both days.
We’ll keep rain chances at 60% as we kick off a new work week on Monday. At this point, we’re expecting a front to be moving southward towards the Tri-State, and its interaction with the aforementioned tropical moisture will provide the focus for another day of widespread shower and storm activity. We’ll rise from the upper 60s into the mid 80s for afternoon highs.
We’re anticipating this front to wash out on Tuesday, and once this occurs, we’ll shift into more of a summer-like pattern as rain chances drop off a bit to 40%. After starting out the day in the upper 60s once again, we’ll ascend to the upper 80s.
Wednesday will feature another 40% chance for showers and storms. We’ll trek from the upper 60s into the upper 80s and possibly low 90s for highs.
