DOTAN, Ala. (WDHN) — We’ll have a few showers and a couple storms this evening, but chances increase the deeper we go into the overnight period. Some of the storms overnight could be strong and possibly severe with a damaging winds being the most likely threat. We also won’t rule out a weak tornado.

Wednesday starts off with storms widespread across the Wiregrass starting around or just before sunrise. The individual storms that are out there right now will turn into a linear segment of storms just before or as it is moving through the Tri-state region. That means gusty winds will become even more of the dominant threat, but we won’t rule out a weak, embedded tornado within the line. The storms should pass through quickly with the threat for severe weather ending around 9 AM. Rain might linger until roughly 11 AM, but skies will clear quickly and temperatures will peak in the low 70s in the early afternoon hours. Then temperatures will drop fast Wednesday evening and overnight into Thursday morning.

Thursday starts off in the upper 30s and peaks in the upper 50s with a few folks possibly squeaking out a high in the low 60s.

Friday will be mostly sunny and only a touch warmer than the day prior. Lows will start around 40 degrees and end up in the middle 60s.

Saturday and Sunday will be in the 50s to start and end up in the middle 70s with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies.

Monday continues the great conditions from the weekend as morning lows start in the middle 50s and afternoon highs peak in the middle 70s under mostly sunny skies.

Tuesday takes us up, up, and away with afternoon highs topping out near 80 degrees!
