WDHN Storm Team: A chance for showers returns on Monday followed by another cooldown


DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — We saw another day filled with plenty of sunshine and seasonable temperatures to kick off the weekend! As we go through the overnight hours, expect an increase in cloud cover, which will only allow our low temperatures to drop down into the 50s.

With this in mind, it still wouldn’t be a bad idea to bring a light jacket with you if you’re planning on going out early in the morning on Sunday, even though it will be a little warmer compared to previous days! You definitely won’t need anything warm after that though, as we can expect to warm up to the 70s by the afternoon. Early on, we’ll likely see a good bit of sunshine, but cloud cover will start to mix in quite a bit as we head towards the second half of the day.

The cloudiness will continue into Sunday night out ahead of our first of two cold fronts expected to move through the Tri-State this week. The moisture out ahead of this front looks to be pretty limited, so we’re only looking at the chance for a few showers as the front sweeps through early in the day on Monday. Thus, rain chances area-wide will be on the lower end around 30%. In wake of it, we’ll clear out for the afternoon hours. Since this front will likely be coming through during the morning hours, our highs will only be able to top out in the mid 60s before our temperatures start falling post-front.

Much cooler and drier air will then filter in as we head into Tuesday morning. We’ll likely begin the day in the mid to upper 30s and only make it up to just shy of 60 degrees for our high temperatures despite abundant sunshine!

Wednesday morning will likely feature our coldest temperatures so far this fall as most spots plummet down to the mid 30s. Therefore, we will need to monitor the potential for frost or maybe a potential light freeze! Thankfully, we’ll warm back up to the 60s for the afternoon with sunny skies expected once again.

We’ll continue on this slight warming trend as we go into Thanksgiving Day, beginning the day around 40 degrees and climbing up to the upper 60s by the second half of the day under mostly sunny skies.

As we go into Friday, our focus will then shift to another cold front heading our way. For now, moisture out ahead of it is looking pretty limited, so we’re only going with a low-end (20%) chance for a shower or two. Otherwise, expect an increase in cloud cover and slightly cooler high temperatures in the mid 60s.

Behind this second front, we’ll likely see another cooldown as we go into Saturday, but it doesn’t look to be as substantial as the early week one. We’ll start off the day in the upper 30s to near 40 and top out in the low 60s as mostly sunny skies return.
