DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Expect rounds of rain to continue pushing through the Tri-State for the remainder of the evening and into the overnight hours. Rainfall will be heavy at times, which could lead to some ponding on the roadways. A embedded thunderstorm or two cannot be ruled as well. Additionally, we’ll continue to see breezy conditions thanks to a strong pressure gradient with our low pressure system. Temperature-wise, most locations will remain steady in the 50s until just after midnight, after which we’ll drop down to the 40s and potentially upper 30s close to daybreak Sunday morning.
Rain will be on its way out by daybreak as well with the low pressure system exiting to the northeast. In its wake, we’ll remain breezy as our temperatures drop throughout the day. Our forecasted high of 43 therefore will likely occur sometime in the early morning, falling after that time. Additionally, with some moisture wrapping around on the backside of the low during the afternoon hours, we’ll see cloud cover remain in place. The potential for any wintry precipitation (ice, freezing rain, sleet, snow, etc.) is expected to stay well off to our north.
The influence of this low looks to leave us behind for the most part by tomorrow night, clearing out the clouds but keeping the breezy conditions around. We’ll see our temperatures drop down to the low to mid 30s to begin Monday.
High pressure will then settle back in during the day on Monday, keeping the cool conditions around and returning us to sunny and entirely dry weather. We’ll top out in the low 50s during the afternoon.
Tuesday looks to start off very similar in the low 30s, followed by a warm up to the mid 50s by the second half of the day under mostly sunny skies.
Temperatures will then finally climb back up to seasonal levels on Wednesday. We’ll begin the morning in the upper 30s and reach the 60s for afternoon highs with a mix of sun and clouds.
Our next cold front then looks to move through early in the day on Thursday, bringing a chance for showers with its passage. No thunderstorms are expected with this system for now, but we’ll continue to monitor it. After starting the day in the low 50s, we’ll only warm up to the upper 50s for highs in wake of the front.
Showers look to linger behind this system as we cool down even further for Friday, with the majority of us beginning the morning in the upper 30s and topping out only in the upper 40s.
We’ll remain cool for Saturday too as we dry out entirely under partly cloudy skies. We’ll start off the day very cold (potentially in the upper 20s) and again only make it up to the upper 40s for highs.
