DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Today will be another mostly sunny and mainly dry day with very hot temperatures. Most locations will make it up to at least the upper 90s, if not the lower 100s for highs. The good news is, even though it will be hot, it won’t feel like it’s way above the actual air temperature; this is because we will have lower humidity values and dewpoints, so it will feel more like a dry heat outdoors as opposed to a humid heat like we saw last week. Even though this will be the case, it is still very important that you drink plenty of water, take frequent breaks, and wear loose-fitting clothing if you’re going to be outdoors at any time today! Like I mentioned before, we should stay mainly dry area-wide. However, an isolated shower or two cannot be entirely ruled out during the peak heating of the day in the afternoon.
Thursday will feature similar conditions, as we’ll see another round of upper 90s and low 100s under mostly sunny skies. Rain chances will be on the low-end once again, with only a 20% chance for an afternoon shower.
Friday will follow in a similar fashion with another 20% chance for PM showers. After beginning the morning in the mid 70s, we’ll climb into the upper 90s to near 100 by the afternoon.
Rain chances will go up to 50% on Saturday, which will help to finally drop our temperatures down a couple degrees. We’ll once again start the day in the mid 70s, but highs will be about 4-5 degrees cooler than previous days as most locations make it up to the mid 90s. Of course, this will be before rain and storms cool us off later on in the afternoon.
Chances for scattered afternoon showers and storms will stay in the forecast Sunday through Tuesday. Each of these three days will feature a 40% chance for rain and high temperatures just above average in the mid 90s. Lows will remain in the 70s.
