DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Tonight will be mild once again as most locations only fall into the low and middle 60s.

We’ll climb to the low and middle 80s Tuesday afternoon. Sunshine and a few clouds will fill the skies like the last several days.

Tuesday night’s temperatures will drop much further than previous nights as lows bottom out around 50 degrees. Some isolated locations could make it down to the upper 40s as well.

Wednesday sees us climb to the upper 60s and low 70s as clouds move in and breezy northeasterly winds bring us much cooler air. 

Our focus then turns to Tropical Storm Nicole as it moves west and likely makes landfall in or near Boca Raton early Thursday morning. The storm will cross the peninsula of Florida and either move into the Gulf of Mexico or remain over land Thursday afternoon into Friday. Now I know you’re looking at Nicole in this webcast and think it’s heading directly toward us, but take heart! There is a cold front moving in from the west, and this should help push the storm a little farther east and keep us on the weaker and degraded western side. We’ll still likely see very gusty winds around 20-30 mph at time on Thursday and Friday, and maybe we’ll even get a little rain. But impacts are not currently expected to be severe. Temperatures will be seasonable as highs reach the mid and upper 70s.

Saturday will feature another cooldown as highs fall back to the low 70s. Mainly sunny skies will prevail.

Temperatures will plummet further Sunday and Monday as highs dive down into the 60s and lows plunge into the 30s and 40s. Both days will also feature mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies.
