DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Hopefully everyone had a fun and safe Fourth of July weekend! The rain held of long enough Saturday night for most of the personal and professional fireworks shows throughout our viewing area.
We have already started this week with numerous storms as a low pressure system moved out of the Gulf of Mexico and into the Southeast US. Many of these storms produced very heavy rain and created hazardous driving conditions throughout the day.
The same system will bring more storms Tuesday and create those same hazardous weather conditions, so be sure to slow down while on the roadways tomorrow. Don’t leave the house without the rain jacket, poncho, or umbrella because the rain will be widespread across the Wiregrass. Cloudy skies will keep temperatures in the mid-80s.
Wednesday won’t see as many showers, but there will still be a high chance for rain along with the below average temperatures. Thursday will take us closer to 90 degrees as rain chances remain close to 50%.
As we approach the weekend, we have to get through one last day of scattered storms on Friday. The breaks in storms and cloud cover will allow us to bump those temperatures back to our seasonal average of 92 degrees.
The weekend looks much drier at this point, but we’ll keep those isolated showers in the forecast as temperatures hop into the mid-90s both Saturday and Sunday. It looks like a good weekend to hit the pool or for kids to run through the ol’ backyard sprinkler.
