DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — It was a cool one out there today, and it will surely be chilly tonight. But now we’re about to move into a warming trend as we approach the weekend.
Thursday will start off right around 40 degrees, so grab that sweater or jacket before heading out the door in the morning. By noon, we’ll be much closer to 70 degrees as easterly winds start to bring in more warm, moist air.
Friday will be warmer in both the morning and afternoon hours: upper 40s and low 50s to start and low to middle 70s during the afternoon. Besides some passing cirrus clouds, skies will still be sunny all day long.
We’ll start off the weekend in the low 50s and peak in the middle 70s on Saturday. Dry conditions continue, but we’ll introduce a little more cloud cover.
Sunday and Monday could see some isolated showers as we continue to bring in even more warm, moist air from the East. Those that don’t catch a shower will still have mostly cloudy skies. Overnight lows will be close to 60 degrees and afternoon highs will be in the upper 70s.
Tuesday and Wednesday have better rain chances. Right now, the mostly likely timing of rain appears to be in the evening hours Tuesday and early morning hours Wednesday. We won’t rule out a few showers or storms outside that overnight time frame, but data mainly points to this weather setup being a line of storms. Considering November typically brings a decent chance for tornadoes to the South, we’ll be monitoring this line very closely.
Tropics are fairly quite right now, with only two areas of interest. The Caribbean area of interest has a 10% chance of forming into a T.D. while the other area of interest in the Atlantic has a 20% chance of formation in the next 5 days.
