DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Another relatively nice day can be expected to wrap up the work week as partly cloudy skies prevail and we take another trip to the low 80s for afternoon highs. We won’t be entirely dry like the last couple days though, as an isolated shower or two will be possible during the mid to late afternoon.

Rain chances will go up to 50% for Saturday as a shortwave makes its way into the region from the west. Scattered showers and storms once again will look to develop mainly during the afternoon and will be driven by daytime heating like we would typically see during the summertime. We’ll start the morning mild in the low 60s and trek up to the mid 80s prior to showers and storms forming later in the day.

We’ll drop those rain chances back down to 30% on Sunday as the influence of the aforementioned shortwave starts to push to the east of our area. Similar temperatures to Saturday can be anticipated as we climb from the low 60s to the mid 80s by the afternoon.

Rain chances will fall down even further to 20% on Monday. We’ll top out in the mid 80s for highs once again after beginning the morning a touch warmer in the mid 60s.

Tuesday and Wednesday will look to feature similar conditions to Monday, with a 20% chance for showers each afternoon. We’ll wake up to temperatures in the mid 60s and ascend to the upper 80s for highs both days.

Another shortwave will approach our area on Thursday. Model runs are inconsistent regarding this next shortwave and whether it will bring a significant enough uptick in moisture to justify higher rain chances. With this in mind, we’ll keep rain chances at 20% for now, but this could change, so stay tuned for updates in the forecast going forward! We’ll remain very warm as we again start the day in the mid 60s and reach the upper 80s for afternoon highs.
