DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Scattered showers and storms can be expected during the afternoon hours again today. Gusty winds and pockets of heavy rain will be possible in the strongest storms, as we typically see during the summertime. Most locations will make it up to the low 90s before showers and storms arrive and cool some of us down.
Thursday will have a 60% chance for PM showers and storms. Highs will likely be a couple degrees cooler with more clouds as well as rain and storm activity anticipated compared to today, with the majority of the region topping out in the upper 80s to low 90s.
A cold front is forecast to sag southward into our area on Friday. This front will provide another area of forcing for scattered to numerous showers and storms during the afternoon. Like the day before, rain chances will be relatively high at around 60% and highs will be in the upper 80s to low 90s.
Rain chances will drop to 30% on Saturday contingent on the front passing south of our area and slightly drier air moves in behind it. High temperatures won’t change much post-front as we make it up to around 90 once again to begin the weekend.
The aforementioned drier air will really start to take hold on Sunday as rain chances fall even further to 20%. We could potentially start the day cooler in the upper 60s. From there, we can expect to reach the 90-degree mark like previous days.
Monday will likely be our driest day this week, with only an isolated shower possible at best. Otherwise, mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies will prevail as we climb into the low 90s.
Rain chances will go back up to 30% on Tuesday. Highs will again be in the low 90s.
