DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Mostly sunny skies are on tap once again for your Thursday. After starting the morning in the low 60s, we’ll rise into the upper 80s during the afternoon for highs.
Our recent stretch of dry weather will finally come to an end on Friday with the arrival of a low pressure system. This low will bring with it an increase in cloud cover and moisture. This addition of moisture will allow for the return of low-end (20%) rain chances to the forecast, with any shower activity likely occurring during the PM hours. We’ll only top out in the low to mid 80s after waking up in the low 60s again, cooling off a couple degrees from what we’ve seen the last couple days as a result of this area of low pressure.
As this aforementioned low starts to pull northward away from the Tri-State on Saturday, it will leave a piece of upper level energy behind it, essentially equating to an area of trailing moisture. This will set the stage for another 20% rain chance to begin the weekend. We’ll be considerably warmer than the day before as we climb back up to the mid and upper 80s for afternoon highs after kicking off the morning in the low 60s once more.
Rain chances will go up a bit to 30% on Sunday. We’ll take a trek up to the upper 80s prior to any showers forming.
We’ll see rain chances drop back down to 20% on Monday as we continue to warm up. A return to the low 90s for afternoon highs can be expected after we begin the day in the mid 60s. Outside of the low-end shower chance and very warm temperatures, we’ll see partly sunny skies.
Rain chances will continue to trend downward on Tuesday, with only an isolated shower possible at best. Otherwise, we’ll see mostly sunny skies as we rise from the upper 60s into the low 90s once more.
Wednesday will feature the same thing as the day before: mostly sunny skies and an isolated chance for a sprinkle. Another hot afternoon will be in store as we rise into the low to mid 90s from the mid 60s.
