DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — We’re starting off the day chilly once again with temperatures mainly in the 40s, so make sure to grab a jacket as you head out the door! As we go through the rest of the morning, we can expect to warm up gradually under mainly sunny skies.

We’ll see a good bit of sunshine stick around for the afternoon hours as well, with some fair weather cloud cover also mixing in. Temperatures will warm up nicely relative to yesterday for our highs as most locations return to the 60s.

We’ll keep a lot of the aforementioned cloud cover around for the overnight hours, meaning we will not be quite as cool heading into tomorrow morning, with most spots bottoming out in the mid to upper 40s. Additionally, with a weak shortwave moving through, a shower or two will be possible closer to daybreak.

Our focus then turns to an approaching cold front for Thursday. In advance of it, we’ll see scattered showers develop and move across the region, mainly during the afternoon hours. The good news is, this front won’t be nearly as strong as the one from the weekend, so we’re not expecting any severe weather with it or even thunderstorms for that matter. The chance for rain area-wide will be around 40%. Highs will be a little bit warmer than today but still seasonable in the upper 60s.

Another shot of cooler and drier air will then filter in behind the front as we head into Friday, dropping our temperatures back down to slightly below normal for this time of year to close out the work week. We’ll begin the day down in the mid 30s and only reach the low to mid 50s by the afternoon despite abundant sunshine.

We’ll start out Saturday similarly cold in the mid 30s. We’ll recover nicely though by the second half of the day, warming up to the mid 60s under mostly sunny skies.

A second cold front then looks to head our way on Sunday, bringing with it another chance for scattered showers and maybe even a few thunderstorms during the afternoon hours. While this system looks to be a bit stronger than the first one, once again we’re not expecting any threat for severe weather with it at this time. Highs will increase even further in spite of the higher rain chances, with most locations making it up to the low to mid 70s.

Some of the shower and storm activity will likely carry into the overnight hours, with rain chances gradually decreasing as the front passes through during the morning hours on Monday. Highs will likely top out in the 60s then before temperatures fall during the afternoon hours in wake of the front’s passage as cooler and drier air filters back in.

With this type of airmass settling back in, this will return us to below normal temperatures and very nice weather for Tuesday of next week. Expect to begin the day in the mid 30s and only top out in the low 50s for afternoon highs with plenty of sunshine to go around.
