DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The line of showers and storms that continues to move through the region this morning will exit off to the southeast in the next hour or so. After that, we’ll see a mix of sun and clouds prevail, which will help to prime us for our next round of shower and storm activity during the mid to late afternoon. This second round of scattered showers and storms will develop thanks to an approaching frontal boundary and the heating of the day. Some of the storms could be on the strong to marginally severe side, with gusty winds, small hail, and heavy rain possible. Areas closest to the Alabama-Florida border have been outlined in a Marginal risk for severe weather (level 1/5); this will be where the potential for an isolated damaging wind gust will exist should a storm reach that severe criteria. Outside of our chance for rain and storms, it will be another hot and humid one; highs will be in the low 90s like the last several days.
With the frontal boundary still around on Friday, we’ll see another round of scattered showers and storms for the final day of the work week. We’ll take another trip up to the low 90s from the low 70s.
Our highest rain chance for the week will come on Saturday at 60%, with scattered to numerous showers and storms expected for the afternoon as the front continues to hang around. We’ll top out around 90 degrees.
Once we get this aforementioned frontal boundary out of the Tri-State, we’ll return to more of a typical summer-like pattern Sunday through Wednesday as rain chances drop back down into the 20-30% range. Temperatures will trend back upward thanks to these decreasing rain chances, especially as we get into the middle portion of the next work week. Highs on Sunday and Monday will be solidly in the low 90s; we’ll creep up a couple degrees into the mid 90s for Tuesday and Wednesday. Lows will stay mild in the 70s.
