DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — We are pretty much done with rain chances for the remainder of the night, with only a sprinkle possible at best. Outside of that, we’ll see partly cloudy skies prevail as we fall into the upper 60s.
Scattered afternoon showers and storms will be possible again on Monday as a mid-level trough moves eastward across the Tri-State. We’ll climb into the upper 80s for highs before rain and storms develop.
Rain chances will drop down to isolated levels for Tuesday and Wednesday. A return to the 90s for highs can be expected both days, with low 90s on Tuesday and mid 90s on Wednesday. With little to no relief from these very warm temperatures anticipated thanks to very low rain chances, make sure to stay hydrated and take frequent breaks if you have any outdoor plans!
Rain chances will go back up to 30% on Thursday as another trough starts to make its way into the region from the west. Despite the higher chance for rain, we’ll still make it up to the mid 90s once again; thankfully, any shower or storm that comes over your area should bring some relief from the heat!
Friday will feature a slightly better chance for rain at 40%. We’ll rise into the low 90s from the low 70s to cap off the work week.
Deeper low-level moisture looks to arrive on Saturday with a cold front, increasing our rain chances even more to 50%. High temperatures will remain very warm as most locations top out around 90 to kick off next weekend. Lows will remain mild in the low 70s.
We’ll see rain chances fall back to 30% on Sunday post-front. Our stretch of 90s will also come to an end behind the front as we begin the morning in the low 70s and ascend to the upper 80s for highs.
TROPICAL UPDATE: We now officially have our first named storm of the season: Alex. Alex continues to move northeastward across the Atlantic as a tropical storm. It is expected to maintain its current intensity as it brushes Bermuda to the north tomorrow morning. Alex will weaken to a post-tropical low as it pushes away from Bermuda into the central Atlantic on Tuesday.
