DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Any shower and storm activity still around this evening should dissipate over the next hour or two. After that, we can expect partly cloudy skies for the rest of the night and the development of some patchy fog as we get closer to daybreak. Temperatures will be mild once again as most locations only fall into the mid 60s. 

Rain chances will remain in the forecast as we begin a new work week tomorrow, but they will be lower than today at 30%. Much like today, showers and storms will likely develop during the afternoon, but this time they will be driven by a frontal system making its way in from the north. One or two of these storms could become strong to severe, with damaging winds and large hail the main threats should any storm reach that severe criteria. The Storm Prediction Center’s Day 2 outlook includes our area in a Marginal (level 1/5) risk for severe weather. We’ll climb into the low 90s for highs.

We’ll keep an isolated chance for a shower in the forecast through Tuesday morning as the front swings through. Once the front clears our area, skies will turn sunny as we head into the afternoon hours. There won’t be much of a temperature difference behind this front because it will bring in drier air rather than cooler air, so anticipate highs in the low 90s once again.

Wednesday will feature mostly sunny skies and another round of hot temperatures. In fact, this day specifically could end up being the hottest of the year so far as we ascend from the mid 60s into the mid 90s area-wide for afternoon highs. If you have any outdoor plans, be sure to stay hydrated and take frequent breaks from the heat when needed.

We’ll see more of the same on Thursday as we wake up to even warmer temperatures in the upper 60s and rise again into the mid 90s. Mainly sunny skies will prevail!

Mostly sunny skies will be on tap once again on Friday, but unlike the last two days, we won’t be entirely dry. An isolated shower or two cannot be ruled out for the afternoon hours. Hot temperatures will continue as we once again reach the low and mid 90s for afternoon highs.

Some relief from the heat looks to arrive on Saturday as rain chances increase to 50% with moisture returning via an area of high pressure in the Atlantic. After beginning the morning in the upper 60s, we’ll take a trip up to the upper 80s and low 90s, cooling off a few degrees from previous days thanks to increased cloud cover and the fact that we’ll likely see more showers and storms area-wide.

We’ll see rain chances drop down a bit to 40% on Sunday. Temperatures will be the same as the day before, with lows in the upper 60s and highs in the upper 80s and low 90s expected once again.
