DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — On and off showers and storms will remain possible for the rest of the night. Low temperatures will be mild once again as we fall to the low 70s.
Deep low-level moisture will continue to filter in from the Gulf tomorrow, setting the stage for another round of wet weather with an 80% chance for showers and storms. The first half of the day will have widespread shower and storm activity, with the afternoon hours more hit-or-miss. A couple storms could again be strong to marginally severe, with damaging wind gusts and large hail possible. Highs will be below average for this time of year in the low 80s thanks to the fact that we’ll see clouds and rain for much of the day.
Rain chances will finally drop a bit to 40% on Tuesday as we start to shift back into more of a summer-like pattern. After beginning the morning in the upper 60s, we’ll rise into the mid 80s.
Wednesday will feature a 50% chance of showers and storms and seasonable high temperatures in the mid 80s.
A cold front will then make its way from the west on Thursday. With it, we’ll see another uptick in our rain chances to 60% as numerous showers and storms likely develop immediately ahead of the frontal boundary and move through the region during the afternoon. Some of these storms could be on the strong side. We’ll rise from the upper 60s into the low and mid 80s for highs.
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 take a trip up to the mid 80s from the upper 60s as we close out the work week.
This aforementioned area of high pressure will set the stage for Saturday’s forecast: sunny skies and entirely dry weather! We’re looking not too shabby to kick off Memorial Day weekend, and it’s not just because of the nice conditions we’re expecting; we’ll keep those temperatures seasonably warm as well, with highs in the mid to upper 80s and lows in the 60s.
We’ll see mostly sunny skies prevail once more on Sunday, but unlike the day before, we won’t be entirely dry. An isolated shower or two cannot be ruled out for the afternoon as rain chances make their way back in to wrap up the weekend. Temperatures will remain near normal with highs in the upper 80s and lows in the mid 60s.
