DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — With the cloud cover from today expected to clear out tonight, we will have a good setup in place for widespread frost to develop as most locations in the Tri-State drop down to the upper 20s for low temperatures. With this in mind, make sure to bring in any outdoor pets and plants and put them in a warm and dry location before you head off to bed!
Additionally, with these frigid temperatures likely remaining in place for a little bit to start your Sunday morning, make sure to bundle up in a heavy jacket/coat, knit hat, gloves, and maybe even a scarf if you’re planning on heading out and about early! The good news is, we’ll warm up nicely from there thanks to abundant sunshine, topping out in the low 50s for afternoon highs.
We’ll cool back down yet again tomorrow night, and with mostly clear skies expected once again, we’ll likely see another round of frost develop as we head through the overnight hours and into Monday morning. We won’t be as cold as tonight though, with the majority of us bottoming out near the 30 degree mark.
After this very cold start to the first day of the work week, we’ll rebound nicely once again for the afternoon as temperatures warm up to the upper 50s under mostly sunny skies.
Showers then look to start moving our way late Monday night out ahead of our next system. This will likely keep our low temperatures warmer than previous nights, with low 40s on tap as we head into early Tuesday morning.
As this system (an area of low pressure down in the Gulf) tracks south of our area on Tuesday, we will continue to see rounds of showers push through during the day, with a 60% chance of rain area-wide. Because we will be on the northern side of this system (the cool side) and we’ll have clouds and rain around, we’ll only warm up to the low 50s for our highs.
Once this system moves out, we’ll see a reinforced shot of cooler air push in behind it. This will help drop our lows back down to the 30s and keep our highs below normal levels in the 50s for Wednesday and Thursday, with mostly sunny skies prevailing both days.
Our next system then looks to potentially move in on Friday. For now, it looks like it will only bring us substantially more cloud cover and maybe a few showers. Temperatures look to not change much either in advance of this system, with mid 50s on tap once again for afternoon highs.
After this second system moves out, expect temperatures to drop down once again to begin next weekend, with Saturday featuring low 30s (and possibly upper 20s) to start off the day followed by highs only topping out in the upper 40s with clouds clearing out by the afternoon.
