DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Football Friday is here, and so are the storms. How long will they last? I’ve got the latest forecast here!
Today’s scattered storms really picked up just before 6 PM, but they are quickly dissipating as the evening moves on. There are still a feew storms, specifically in Pike and Barbour counties and also in Early and Miller counties, but that just about wraps up the current situation. The fields will still be wet from the storms over the past few hours, and we won’t rule out a stray shower this evening.
Tomorrow and Sunday will be a repeat of today with scattered storms throughout the day and temperatures hanging in the low 90s.
Not much changes at the beginning of next week, so continue to expect storms and very humid conditions Monday and Tuesday.
However, by mid-week we’ll see our temperatures gradually increase as rain chances drop to 30%. By Friday, we could see temperatures much closer to 95 degrees.
We’re watching two areas of interest out in the Atlantic. Over the next 5 days, the tropical wave moving into the Caribbean has been given a 30% chance to turn into a tropical depression. The wave just off the coast of Africa has a 40% chance of becoming a tropical depression. And it doesn’t stop there, folks. Move waves are expected to come off the coast of Africa here soon as we approach the peak of hurricane season in September.
