DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — One round of showers down, a few more to go!
Besides one or two more showers SE of Dothan this evening, the Tri-State will be dry tonight. Temperatures will barely drop out of the 70s tonight due to the increase in moisture.
Thursday’s rain chances are low, and most of the showers and storms will dissipate shortly after crossing the GA/AL line. Temperatures will be back into the low 80s with partly sunny skies.
Friday’s 30% chance for showers and storms will once again be primarily confined to our southern and eastern counties, but a stray shower will probably cross into interior portions of SE Alabama. Those morning lows in the upper 60s and afternoon highs in the low 80s continue on Friday and Saturday. Saturday’s line of showers and storms looks to be very broken at this point.
Sunday and Monday will be a little more calm compared to these next few days. Those isolated showers will stay in the forecast, and temperatures might peak a little closer to the middle 80s.
The middle of next week is very uncertain in timing, strength, and coverage of more wet weather. Currently, it looks like there will be two possibilities: one round of rain Tuesday into Wednesday and another Thursday or Friday. Some of these storms might be a little bit stronger, which brings me to this next point.
