DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Tonight will be very warm as we sit in the low 50s all night long. A few light showers will be possible late this evening. The wet weather activity will pick up significantly after midnight with strong storms possible before sunrise. A Flash Flood Watch is out for SW Ga. from now until 7 AM EST Friday.
Thursday will start off in the 50s, and many residents will easily move into the 60s as warm, moist air from the Gulf is brought into the Tri-State. Depending on the exact track of the low pressure system, we could see highs ranging from the 50s to 70 degrees. I expect reports of damaging winds and a tornado or two before all is said and done. The most likely area for severe weather is Dothan and points to the south and east. This area will have more of the components for severe weather than the Western Wiregrass. Multiple rounds and showers and storms are possible throughout the day, so don’t think it is over if it stops raining early where you are at. Because of the multiple rounds of rain, some places could see 2.5+ inches of rain by Friday morning.
Friday might see a few light showers early, but most of the day will be dry. Temperatures will start in the middle 30s and only move into the upper 40s or low 50s.
Saturday will start below freezing and jump into the middle 50s with lots of sunshine.
Sunday will be very sunny and even warmer as highs eclipse 60 degrees.
Monday has a low chance for some showers. Temperatures will be significantly warmer in the morning with lows in the 50s. Highs will be in the low to middle 60s.
Tuesday should be nicer than Monday and a few degrees cooler. More sunny skies and highs in the low 60s will make for a pleasant day.
Wednesday looks sunny and warm with highs in the middle and upper 60s!
