DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — We are done with rain for the remainder of the evening and overnight. Expect partly to mostly cloudy skies to prevail as we fall into the upper 60s and low 70s.
Another round of wet weather is on tap for your Sunday as deep low-level moisture continues to filter in from the Gulf. This will translate to an 80% chance for showers and storms, with much of the activity coming in the afternoon once again during the peak heating of the day. Much like today, some storms could be on the strong to marginally severe side, with pockets of damaging wind and large hail possible. High temperatures will be near seasonal norms again in the mid to upper 80s.
Rain chances will remain high (around 70%) as we kick off a new work week on Monday. We’ll begin the morning right around 70 and climb into the mid 80s during the afternoon for highs.
We’ll drop those chances down to hit-or-miss territory for Tuesday and Wednesday as we shift into more of a summer-like pattern. Expect 40% chances for PM showers and storms both days and highs in the mid to upper 80s.
A cold front will then make its way from the west on Thursday. With it, we’ll see another uptick in our rain chances to 60% as numerous showers and storms likely develop immediately ahead of the frontal boundary and move through the region during the afternoon. Some of these storms could be on the strong side. We’ll rise from the upper 60s into the mid 80s.
This front will push out of our area to the east on Friday. A few showers will be possible in the morning as the front exits. Post-front, we’ll see skies clear out as drier air and high pressure start to settle in during the second half of the day. Once again, we’ll take a trip up to the mid 80s for highs from the upper 60s.
This aforementioned area of high pressure will set the stage for Saturday’s forecast: sunny skies and entirely dry weather! We’re looking not too shabby to kick off Memorial Day weekend, and it’s not just because of the nice conditions we’re expecting; we’ll keep those temperatures seasonably warm as well, with highs in the mid 80s and lows in the 60s.
