DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Another round of showers and storms is on tap for your Wednesday, particularly during the afternoon hours. Some of these storms will have the potential once again to become strong to severe, but the overall scope of the threat today looks to be on the lower end when compared to what we saw yesterday. Any storm that develops also won’t be within a line; we’ll be looking at more of a pop-up type variety like we would typically see during the summertime. If a storm becomes severe, we could see damaging winds up to 60 mph, large hail, and possibly an isolated tornado. The tornado threat, in particular, will be very low since there will be less shear in the atmosphere than yesterday. Temperature-wise, we’ll be a couple degrees warmer than yesterday for highs, topping out in the low 80s.
Our long-awaited cold front with this system is set to push through the Tri-State tonight, likely bringing one final round of showers with it through Thursday morning. These will not be severe. Lows tonight will be cooler as we drop down into the mid to upper 50s post-frontal passage.
Any remaining showers should be out of our area by mid-morning Thursday. From there, we’ll see skies clear as we head through the rest of the day, with sunshine likely returning to many spots by the time we reach the afternoon! We’ll only warm up to the low 70s for highs as cooler and drier post-frontal air starts to move in.
We’ll keep these cool and dry conditions around for Friday. After beginning the morning down in the upper 40s, we’ll climb up to the upper 60s for highs. Mostly sunny skies will prevail.
Saturday will look to start off even colder in the low to mid 40s. From there, we’ll only make it up to the mid 60s during the afternoon. Sunshine will be plentiful once again as we kick off the weekend!
We’ll finally start to warm back up on Sunday as we return to the mid 70s for highs after waking up to another round of 40s. Lots of sunshine can be expected once again.
This warming trend will continue into Monday, where we’ll ascend back to the 80s after starting out in the upper 40s. We’ll see the return of some clouds to the region.
For Tuesday, we’ll reintroduce a chance for a few showers to the forecast as our next system potentially starts to inch closer from the west. We’ll begin the morning substantially warmer in the mid 50s and again top out in the 80s for afternoon highs.
