DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — We’ll see mostly sunny skies prevail today as most locations stay dry; only an isolated shower or two will be possible at best during the afternoon hours. We’ll rise into the low 90s for highs.
Rain chances will go back up to 30% tomorrow as a cold front starts to work its way in from the northwest. We’ll climb from the low 70s into the low 90s once again.
Friday will also feature a 30% chance for showers and storms as the aforementioned cold front continues to push through the region. We’ll ascend from the low 70s into the low 90s yet again.
Once the cold front pushes south of the Tri-State, we’ll see rain chances drop back to isolated levels on Saturday. No change in temperature is expected post-front, as another round of low 90s will be on tap to begin the weekend.
Rain chances will go back up a bit to 20% on Sunday. We’ll take another trip into the low 90s for afternoon highs from the upper 60s.
We’ll kick off a new work week on Monday with a 30% chance of showers and storms. Highs in the low 90s are anticipated once again.
Rain chances will then drop once more, returning to isolated levels by Tuesday. Temperatures will be similar to previous days, with highs in the low 90s and lows in the low 70s expected.
TROPICAL UPDATE: The remnants of former Hurricane Agatha continue to move eastward across the Yucatan Peninsula. This area of unorganized showers and storms is still forecast to move into the southeastern Gulf of Mexico in the next couple days, where conditions will be highly favorable for development. The National Hurricane Center gives this system a high chance (80% in the next 5 days) of organizing enough to become at least a tropical depression and highlights the SE Gulf of Mexico northeastward into the Florida Peninsula as the area where this potential first named storm (Alex) could track. At this point, no impacts from this storm are anticipated for us or along the northern Gulf Coast, but we’ll continue to watch the progress of this system in the days going forward.
