WDHN Storm Team: Drying out, warming up, and keeping watch as P.T.C. Nine moves toward the States


DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — It has been a dreary Wiregrass day, but things are going to brighten up as we approach the weekend. Here’s what’s in store.

Thursday will have a decreased chance for showers with a return to near normal temperatures as we step up into the low 90s. The scattered showers won’t be nearly as widespread as what we saw today.

Friday will be warmer with temperatures in the mid-90s and heat indices returning to 100+ degrees. Besides a couple isolated showers or storms, it will be a dry day for almost everyone.

Saturday continues Friday’s hot and dry conditions with heat indices closer to 105 degrees.

While Sunday won’t be a washout by any means, the rain chances go up just a touch with temperatures remaining in the mid-90s. After Sunday, things start to get a little tricky.

If the tropical system labeled P.T.C. Nine (could soon be Tropical Storm Isaias) moves into the Gulf, Tri-State residents can expect higher rain chances Monday and Tuesday. We can also expect our temperatures to decrease to the low 90s and upper 80s. If the system stays out over the Atlantic, we’ll be warmer with less rain. The National Hurricane Center is trying to pinpoint the track of this system, but it has been very difficult because the storm is very disorganized. Either way, folks living in SW Georgia and close to Tallahassee, FL will be the ones most likely impacted out of the residents in the Tri-State. We’ll continue monitoring the system as it progresses toward Florida and keep you up to date with the latest information.
