DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Much of the cloud cover that we saw across the region during the day today has pushed out of our area to the east, so expect mostly clear skies to prevail as we go through the rest of the evening and overnight hours. We’ll take another trip down to around the 50 degree mark for lows like last night.
For your Sunday, we can look forward to lots of sunshine and seasonably warm temperatures! We’ll climb up to the upper 70s during the afternoon hours for highs.
Monday will look to feature equally pleasant conditions (mostly sunny skies) as we return to the 80s for afternoon highs after starting the morning in the upper 40s and low 50s.
Our next system will push in on Tuesday (a warm front). As it lifts northward throughout the day, we can anticipate the development of widespread showers and storms, some of which could be on the strong to severe side. We’ll provide more specific information on the timing and specific threats to watch out for once high-resolution model data becomes available in the next day or two! After beginning the day mild in the low 60s, we’ll ascend to the upper 70s for highs.
The cold front associated with this system is not anticipated to move through our area until Wednesday night/early Thursday morning. Thus, we’ll likely see another round of showers (more scattered in nature compared to Tuesday) develop during the day on Wednesday since we’ll remain in a moisture-rich pre-frontal airmass. We’ll start out the morning very warm in the mid 60s. From there, we’ll make our way back up to the mid 80s by the afternoon.
We’ll keep rain chances around through Thursday morning before we dry out and see skies clear following the passage of the cold front. We’ll only rise up to the mid 70s for highs after again waking up to temperatures in the 60s thanks to cooler post-frontal air starting to work its way into the region by the afternoon.
High pressure will then settle in on Friday, returning us to entirely dry weather as we wrap up the work week! We’ll definitely feel the effects of the cold front even more so than the day before, beginning the morning down in the upper 40s and only topping out in the mid 60s despite mostly sunny skies.
We’ll see this unseasonably cool weather stick around for Saturday as well. For the first day of next weekend, expect to wake up to even colder temperatures in the low 40s and reach the mid 60s for highs once again. Mostly sunny skies will prevail.
