DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Another round of chilly temperatures can be expected tonight as most locations drop into the low 40s under clear skies.
For your Sunday, we can look forward to lots of sunshine once again! Thanks to a shift in wind direction from westerly to southerly, we’ll see a significant uptick in those high temperatures relative to the last few days as we return to the mid to upper 70s. Winds will not be nearly as breezy as they have been the last two days.
We’ll begin a new work week on Monday milder in the low 50s. Throughout the day, we can anticipate clouds to move back in along with a low-end (20%) chance for a few showers. We’ll warm up to around 80 degrees for afternoon highs.
Tuesday will look to feature much of the same: partly sunny to mostly cloudy skies and a 20% chance for showers. After starting off in the mid to upper 50s, we’ll climb up even further into the mid 80s for highs.
For Wednesday, we can wash, rinse, and repeat exactly the same forecast from the two days prior. The only difference is that we’ll wake up to even warmer temperatures in the low 60s. High temperatures once again will be in the mid 80s.
We’ll finally see our rain chances go up on Thursday to 50% as our next system (a cold front) makes its way in from the west. After waking up to temperatures in the mid 60s, we’ll take a trip up to around 80 for highs, cooling off a little bit compared to previous days thanks to cloud cover and scattered showers and storms moving back in. It’s a bit uncertain right now if the storms associated with this front will have severe weather potential, so check back later for updates!
After this system pushes through, we’ll see rain chances drop off a good bit on Friday, but not quite to zero since the front itself looks to stall just to our south. Temperatures will not change all that much post-front, as we can expect to rise up into the low 80s from the 60s once again to close out the work week.
Another front looks like it could make its way in on Saturday. The model solutions differ at this time in terms of the rain chances, with the Euro bringing in a high probability for showers and the GFS doing the exact opposite. With this in mind, we’ll raise our chance for showers only a little bit to 30% as we kick off next weekend. We’ll begin the morning in the low 60s and top out in the low 80s for highs.
