DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Today will be considerably warmer than yesterday as highs top out near the 70-degree mark. A mix of sun and clouds will fill the skies.

We’ll start out Saturday in the low 50s and end up in the mid 70s. Clouds and moisture will increase a bit ahead of a weakening cold front. This uptick in moisture with the front will also lead to the development of a few showers during the late afternoon and evening hours. We’ll give it about a 30% chance for rain for the late PM hours with this in mind.

We won’t cool down all that much post-front on Sunday, as we’ll reach the low 70s after beginning the morning in the upper 50s. A shortwave clipping the region to the north will provide us with another opportunity for showers, but rain chances should be slightly lower than the day before at around 20%.

Monday will feature partly sunny skies and a 10% chance for a sprinkle or two. Expect to make it into the low 70s again from the mid 50s.

Rain chances will go back up to 20% on Tuesday as another shortwave just barely touches our area. Highs will rise into the mid and upper 70s.

Wednesday will have a slightly lower, but nonzero, chance for an isolated sprinkle or two. There’s a chance high temperatures on this day specifically could be flirting with or break records as the majority of Tri-State residents top out just below the 80-degree mark.

Thursday will likewise have a 10% chance for a shower or two. We won’t be as warm as the day before, but we’ll still be well above average for early December as we climb into the mid 70s area-wide.
