DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — A cluster of showers and storms will move through the Tri-State today. Some of these storms could be strong to severe with damaging wind gusts up to 60 mph, large hail, and a tornado or two all possible, as our entire region is under a Slight (level 2/5) risk for severe weather from the Storm Prediction Center. Our window for severe weather will be between noon and 6 PM. Make sure you have a way to receive warnings and have the rain gear as you head out and about today! Outside of the rain and storms today, it’ll be a little cooler as highs make it up to the middle and upper 70s. Storms should push out later in the evening, with dry conditions expected for the rest of the night.
Tuesday will be much calmer, but not entirely dry, as we’ll remain in a very moisture-rich airmass. Thus, a few showers will still be possible. Otherwise, we’ll see partly cloudy skies prevail as we soar into the mid 80s from the mid to upper 60s.
Wednesday similarly will have a low but nonzero chance for a shower or two. We’ll start the morning in the mid 60s and peak in the mid 80s again.
Rain chances will go up slightly to 30% on Thursday. It’ll feel like summer once more with afternoon highs in the middle 80s.
