DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — All of the cloud cover we had in place across much of the Tri-State earlier this morning has cleared out, so expect mainly sunny skies to prevail for the remainder of the day! We’ll warm up to the low 70s for highs during the afternoon hours. Winds will be on the breezy side as cooler and drier air continues to rush in on the backside of our cold front from this morning, with sustained speeds increasing into the 10-15 mph range. Some gusts up to 25 mph will be possible as well.
This cool post-frontal air will influence our forecast for Friday as well. We’ll begin the morning down in the mid 40s and only climb into the mid to upper 60s by the second half of the day despite seeing lots of sunshine! Wind speeds will remain elevated as well, similar to today.
Saturday will look to feature much of the same: sunny skies and another round of unseasonably cool temperatures. After waking up to the low 40s, we’ll again top out in the mid to upper 60s.
We’ll start off Sunday chilly in the low 40s once more, but by the afternoon, we can look forward to a nice ascent back up to the mid 70s. Abundant sunshine can be expected once again.
We’ll warm up even further into the 80s for highs on Monday after beginning the morning in the upper 40s. We’ll see the return of some clouds to the region.
For Tuesday and Wednesday, we’ll bring back a low-end (20%) chance for showers to the forecast as our next system starts to inch closer from the west. We’ll start out both days substantially warmer in the upper 50s and low 60s and take a trip up to the mid 80s for afternoon highs.
