DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — You’ll definitely want to have a jacket on hand as you head out the door this morning, as we’re seeing another cool start to the day area-wide with most spots sitting in the 50s. As we go through the rest of the morning, you’ll be able to shed it rather quickly as we warm up thanks to mostly sunny skies.
A mix of sun and clouds will stick around for much of the afternoon as well, and we’ll look to stay dry and seasonable once again thanks to a ridge parked over our area. Afternoon highs will top out in the low 80s for most locations.
Cloud cover will start to increase as we go through the overnight hours and into Thursday morning as the aforementioned ridge moves out and a trough and associated cold front starts moving our way. Out ahead of this system, ample moisture will stream in thanks to southerly flow from the Gulf. Therefore, the chance for scattered showers and a few storms will return to the forecast for Thursday. The day will not be a washout by any means thankfully, with the rain chance area-wide around 40%. Highs once again will be seasonable, with most spots reaching the low 80s.
The cold front itself will push through the region on Friday, with the chance for a few showers possible once again prior to it moving through. The coverage of rain though should be more isolated compared to Thursday. Highs once again will be in the low 80s.
After the front moves out, we can expect drier air to filter back into the region for the weekend, with both Saturday and Sunday featuring mainly sunny skies. Temperatures won’t change much in wake of the front, as high temperatures both days will remain near average for this time of year in the low to mid 80s.
Nice and seasonable weather will continue for Monday and Tuesday of next week as well. We can expect mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies for both days with highs in the low to mid 80s.
