DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Scattered showers and storms will develop today during the mid to late afternoon and continue into the evening hours as a shortwave pushes in and interacts with Gulf moisture and a stationary boundary over our area. Some of these storms could be on the strong to severe side, with damaging wind gusts up to 60 mph possible in spurts. The SPC has placed the entirety of SE Alabama and SW Georgia under a Marginal (level 1/5) risk for severe weather in their Day 1 outlook to account for this threat. Highs will top out in the mid 90s like yesterday.
Rain chances will go up to 70% tomorrow as moisture continues to stream in and the aforementioned frontal boundary remains parked over our area. High temperatures will drop off to the upper 80s with more cloud cover around in conjunction with numerous showers and storms.
Friday will likely be our wettest day this week with an 80% chance for showers and storms. We’ll only climb to the mid and upper 80s from the low 70s. Make sure to bring a rain jacket or umbrella to any Friday night football games, because there’s a chance we may have some rain and storms that hang around through the evening!
Saturday will have a 60% chance for afternoon showers and storms as abundant moisture remains in place to start the weekend. Highs will stay cool in the upper 80s.
Rain chances will fall back into the 40-50% range for Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday as the frontal boundary pushes back to the north. Expect highs to rise back up to the low 90s as we close out the weekend and kick off a new work week. Lows will remain in the 70s.
