DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — High dewpoints and additional cloud cover will make for a warm and muggy night as lows only drop into the low 70s.
Friday will be our last hot day with highs in the low to middle 90s. Mostly to partly sunny skies will give way to a 20% chance for pop-up showers during the afternoon and evening.
Saturday and Sunday have a 60% and 80% chance for showers and storms respectively. Morning lows will still be in the low 70s, but our afternoon highs should drop to the more seasonable middle to upper 80s on Saturday and middle 80s on Sunday. Saturday looks to be primarily dry in the morning, but Sunday will have scattered showers and storms throughout the day.
Monday has a 60% chance for showers with morning lows in the upper 60s and afternoon highs in the middle 80s.
Tuesday and Wednesday will both have a 30% chance for showers and highs in the middle to upper 80s.
Thursday keeps our morning lows in the upper 60s, our afternoon highs in the middle 80s, and brings us another 40% chance for rain.
Tropical Development in the Gulf of Mexico seems highly unlikely. High pressure over the Atlantic and a Saharan Dust Layer over the Caribbean/Gulf of Mexico will likely impede the development of any organized areas of low pressure or areas of convection. The Saharan Dust will probably make it to the Gulf Coast, but its impacts on our air quality will be limited because of the shower activity this weekend and early next week.
