DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Today will be mostly sunny and very warm with highs in the mid 80s. An isolated sprinkle will be possible during the PM hours.
We’ll begin Tuesday a lot milder in the mid 60s and end up in the low to possibly mid 80s again. A shortwave will zip through the region and interact with a subtropical ridge in place, which will allow for the development of a few more showers than today, so we’ll go with about a 30% chance for rain.
Expect Wednesday to be cooler behind the shortwave as most locations climb from the low 60s into the mid 70s. Partly cloudy skies will prevail, and with some moisture still in place, one or two showers will be possible.
We’ll make it up to the low 70s from the middle and upper 50s on Thursday under partly cloudy skies. A few more afternoon showers will be possible.
A cold front will push into the Wiregrass on Friday, which will bring us an even better chance for rain and maybe a few storms. Severe weather could end up being a possibility with this system, but for now, the prospects for it are low. We’ll climb from the the upper 50s into the middle 70s for highs.
Rain chances will drop back into the 20-30% range behind the front on Saturday and Sunday as high temperatures remain in the 70s. However, as we head beyond Sunday night into next week, we’ll be watching another front that could bring us a pretty substantial cooldown from those 70s.
