DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Today will be a seasonably warm day with highs in the low to mid 90s. With an upper level ridge overhead, convection is anticipated to be pretty limited, so only expect a couple showers and maybe a storm or two during the afternoon. Rain chances area-wide will be lower than previous days at around 30%.
Rain chances will go up a bit to 40% for Thursday and Friday. Again, showers and storms will develop mainly during the PM hours both days. Temperatures will remain near seasonal norms, with afternoon highs in the low to mid 90s and lows in the mid to upper 70s.
We’ll have a 50-50 shot at getting rain and storms on Saturday as our typical summertime pattern continues on into the weekend. We’ll take another trip up to the low and mid 90s from the mid and upper 70s.
Rain chances will increase to 70% on Sunday as a weak surface trough pushes into the region. As it interacts with abundant Gulf moisture, a more widespread coverage of showers and storms is expected for the afternoon and evening. Thanks to the fact that we’ll have more in the way of clouds and rain on this day specifically, most will only peak in the upper 80s, but one or two locations could still reach the 90 degree mark as well.
Once this trough exits, we’ll return to our typical summertime pattern of hit-or-miss rain chances for Monday and Tuesday. Both days will have a 40-50% chance for showers and storms and temperatures around average, with highs in the low 90s and lows in the mid 70s.
