WDHN Storm Team: Dry tomorrow, but scattered showers this weekend

Weather

DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Showers will taper off over the next couple hours. Expect dry conditions tonight with partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the low 70s.

Thursday will be our driest day over the next week. An isolated shower is possible but unlikely. Highs will be in the low 90s.

Friday-Sunday all have a 40% chance for showers and storms right now, but that might be on the rise when we get more data tomorrow. We’ll start off in the low and middle 70s each morning and barely make it to 90 during the afternoons.

The weather for Monday and Tuesday is currently up for debate. It’s very likely that a tropical system will be making landfall somewhere in the Gulf of Mexico one of those two days. Models have consistently taken it to the western half of the Gulf over the past few days, but there has been a change in how far west it is expected to go. The last few model runs take the potential system to Louisiana. If the track continues to creep farther east, that will increase our chances for rain significantly and drop our temperatures to the middle 80s.

Wednesday has a 50/50 shot at rain with high temperatures expected to be in the upper 80s.
