DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Today will be our last day with highs in the 90s. Partly cloudy skies can be expected along with a 20% chance for a shower or two during the afternoon hours as moisture starts to stream back in from the Gulf.
Rain chances will increase substantially tomorrow to 60% as we bring in higher levels of low-level moisture. The good news is, it won’t rain all day; we’ll likely see a dry and partly cloudy first half of the day followed by the development of widespread showers and storms during the afternoon. Thanks to a higher coverage of rain and the fact that we’ll likely see more clouds, we’ll only rise from the low 70s into the mid and upper 80s for highs, right around where we should be for this time of year.
Rain chances will go up even further on Sunday to 80%. Unlike Saturday, showers and storms will be possible all day and not just during the afternoon, so make sure to have the rain gear handy if you have plans to go out and about! We’ll start out in the low 70s once again and climb into the mid 80s.
Rain chances will remain high (around 60%) as we kick off a new work week on Monday. At this point, a front is forecast to be moving southward towards the Tri-State, and its interaction with the aforementioned tropical moisture will provide the focus for another day of widespread shower and storm activity. We’ll trek from the upper 60s into the mid 80s for afternoon highs.
We’ll return to more of a typical summer-like pattern after this front moves through as rain chances drop off to hit-or-miss territory around 30% on Tuesday. We’ll start to warm back up as well in the high temperature department as we ascend back into the upper 80s.
Hit-or-miss rain chances will continue into Wednesday and Thursday, with both days featuring 40% chances for showers and storms. Temperatures will remain seasonable, with highs in the mid to upper 80s and lows in the upper 60s expected.
