DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — On-and-off rain will continue throughout the rest of the day today as an area of low pressure down in the Gulf and its associated shortwave continue to push eastward across the region. Clouds and shower activity will help keep our temperatures cool as most locations only make it up to around 50.
Showers will move out tonight with clouds sticking around behind this system for the most part. Overnight lows will be similar to last night in the low 40s.
We’ll keep skies mostly cloudy on Wednesday. Highs will be a bit warmer in the mid 50s.
Thursday will have a 50% chance for showers during the afternoon and evening hours as a cold front pushes through the region. Ahead of the front, we’ll warm up to the seasonal low 60s.Post-front, temperatures will plummet overnight Thursday into Friday as Arctic air plunges southward.
We’ll wake up Friday morning frigid in the mid 20s, and even though the rain will have come to an end, wet spots on the roadways from the showers the day/night before could lead to ice on overpasses, streets, and sidewalks since temperatures will be well below freezing. Keep this in mind if you have any plans to head out on the roads! We’ll only make it up to around the freezing mark (32 degrees) for afternoon highs even though we’ll see mainly sunny skies all day.
Temperatures will drop like a rock again into the upper teens and low 20s both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day morning. Highs will climb to just above freezing. Partly to mostly sunny skies will prevail both days.
Monday should be warmer as high temperatures rise back into the mid 40s. Expect sunshine and a few high clouds to fill the skies as we kick off the final week of 2022.
