DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Tonight will be another mild one as most locations only fall into the mid 60s. Mostly cloudy skies will prevail.
For your Monday, we’ll see partly cloudy skies along with the potential for more showers and maybe a storm or two during the afternoon. Rain chances will be a good bit lower than this weekend at around 20%, so not everyone in our area will see wet weather. We’ll take a trip up to the mid 80s for highs much like today.
Tuesday will look to feature similar weather: a mix of sun and clouds with another 20% chance for showers during the PM hours. We’ll wake up on the warm side once again in the mid 60s and climb into the mid to upper 80s.
Wednesday will follow in a similar fashion, with partly cloudy skies and a 20% chance for a shower or two anticipated once again. We’ll trek up from the mid 60s in the morning solidly into the upper 80s for afternoon highs.
Thursday will likely be our driest day this week, with rain chances isolated at best. Outside of that, we’ll see partly sunny skies and very warm temperatures continue as we again start out in the mid 60s and reach the upper 80s.
Rain chances will go back up to 40% on Friday as our next system (a cold front) moves in later in the day. No severe weather is expected at this point in time with this front. After beginning the morning very mild in the upper 60s, we’ll top out in the mid 80s as we cool off a little bit from previous days thanks to increased cloud cover and a higher coverage of rain.
The front is forecast to push eastward out of our area sometime during the day on Saturday. Before it does, we’ll have another chance for showers, but it will be lower than Friday at 20%. We’ll wake up to slightly cooler temperatures in the low 60s and again make it up to the mid 80s for highs.
Sunday is where a little bit of uncertainty arises regarding the front. There’s a chance that it could get hung up just south of our area. However, there’s also the possibility that it pushes further south for good and makes its way into the Florida Peninsula. Given the time of year we’re in, the first scenario seems more likely, so we’ll keep at least an isolated chance for a shower in the forecast for now. Otherwise, we’ll see a little bit more in the way of sunshine as we take a trip from the low 60s into the mid to upper 80s as things start warming back up a bit to wrap up next weekend.
