DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Most of us dodged those isolated showers today, but we’ve got more rain on the way. The low pressure system currently centered on the KS/MO/NE border will be strengthening, and it’s associated cold front will be digging farther south. Therefore, we’ll have more warm, moist air for the next couple days before some nice weather moves in later this weekend.
Tonight will be dry and very warm with lows still in the upper 60s tomorrow morning.
Friday will be a 30% chances of showers and storms specifically in the afternoon and early evening hours. A few lingering showers could impact the first half of some of our high school football games, but most of the rain should be gone by the second half.
The frontal passage on Saturday will increase our rain chances a bit as a line of storms crosses the eastern half of the country. However, it looks like that line will be fairly broken up on Saturday, which means not everyone will see rain. These scattered storms will be in the area from morning to evening.
Behind the front is some drier air, so Sunday’s rain chances will be low and sky conditions will be fair. Monday will be sunny with a few, passing clouds. Both days will be in the low to middle 80s.
Tuesday will be mostly sunny, but the late evening and overnight hours could see some scattered showers ahead of a line that’s expected to move through mid-week. Winds out of the South will give us another day of low to mid-80s.
Wednesday and Thursday will be our main focus next week considering there is a chance for a couple rounds of rain those days. So far, it looks like the Wiregrass’ best chance in about 2 weeks for widespread heavy rainfall and even some stronger storms.
