DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Widespread showers and storms are on tap once again for your Wednesday. Much like the last several days, a few storms could be strong to marginally severe, with damaging wind gusts and large hail the main threats. High temperatures will be below average for this time of year in the low 80s thanks to the fact that we’ll see clouds overhead and rain falling for much of the day.
We’ll keep things unsettled on Thursday as a cold front makes its way into the region from the west. Out ahead of this front, a line of showers and storms is forecast to push through the Tri-State during the afternoon hours. Along this line, the potential for strong to marginally severe storms will exist once more; damaging winds and large hail again look to be the primary threats, but a brief tornado or two cannot be ruled out as well. With all this being said, make sure to keep an eye to the skies both today and tomorrow! We’ll take another trip up to the low 80s for highs after starting the day in the upper 60s.
This front will push out of our area to the east on Friday. A few showers will be possible in the morning as the front exits. Post-front, we’ll see skies clear out as drier air and high pressure start to settle in during the second half of the day. We’ll climb from the upper 60s into the mid 80s.
We’ll kick off Memorial Day weekend on Saturday with lots of sunshine and comfortably warm temperatures! Expect to warm up from the low 60s into the mid 80s once again by the afternoon.
Sunday will also feature mainly sunny skies, but unlike Saturday, we won’t be entirely dry. An isolated shower or two cannot be ruled out during the second half of the day. We’ll ascend from the mid 60s into the upper 80s for highs.
We’ll keep low-end rain chances in the forecast for Memorial Day and Tuesday as well. We’ll warm up even further into the low 90s for highs; lows will be seasonable in the mid to upper 60s.
