DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Another line of showers and storms currently located in southeast Mississippi is expected to sag southeastward towards the Tri-State tonight. It will reach our western counties first around midnight and exit Early County to the east by about 3 AM. Even though this line will likely be in the process of weakening as it moves in, a strong storm or two will still be possible, with gusty winds, hail, and heavy rain being the main threats. Behind the line, we’ll see some lingering showers as we head through the rest of the overnight. Low temperatures will be mild once again as most locations only fall into the mid 60s.

A few showers will stick around into early Monday morning as the cold front responsible for all of the activity we’ve seen over the last couple days finally sweeps through the region. Post-front, we can anticipate skies to clear rather quickly, with sunshine returning to most spots by as early as lunchtime as we dry out for the rest of the day! Winds will also pick up as well into the 15-20 mph range thanks to a strong pressure gradient behind the front. Some higher gusts up to 25-30 mph will be possible as well, so it may not be a bad idea to bring in any loose outdoor objects! We’ll climb into the upper 70s by the afternoon for highs.

In addition to the dry conditions, slightly cooler air will push in starting Monday night, and this will set the stage for Tuesday’s forecast. We’ll start the morning back down in the upper 40s to low 50s and only warm up to the low 70s for afternoon highs despite lots of sunshine.

We can look forward to relatively similar conditions (mostly sunny skies) for Wednesday, but with warmer temperatures. After beginning the day with another round of upper 40s, we’ll quickly return to the upper 70s/low 80s for highs.

We’ll see more of the same high temperature-wise on Thursday as we climb from the upper 50s in the morning to the low 80s by the afternoon. Clouds will be around in the morning, but they’ll give way to mostly sunny skies by the second half of the day.

Friday and Saturday are expected to have temperatures relatively similar to Thursday as we again trek up to the low to possibly mid 80s both days after starting out in the upper 50s. Sunny skies will prevail!

We’ll keep these warm temperatures around into Sunday. After waking up mild in the upper 50s, we’ll take another trip up to the mid 80s for afternoon highs under mostly sunny skies.
