WDHN Storm Team: Severe weather risk increasing this weekend


DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — You likely won’t need the umbrella for Friday Night Football! Storms have already exited the area, and the chance of a return shower is very slim.

Tomorrow will be much different. Showers and storms will begin early, but they will be very hit or miss before noon. Afternoon heating will enable a few more showers and storms to scatter across the region before the main lines rolls into the Western Wiregrass in the early evening hours. This line should clear the area by midnight. A few scattered light showers after midnight will be possible. There is a marginal risk for gusty, damaging winds and an isolated tornado tomorrow, especially for the Western Wiregrass. We’ll monitor that evening threat very closely, but keep your WDHN weather app handy for the latest alerts.

Sunday’s rain chances are much lower, and primarily confined to the first half of the day. By Monday, we’ll be drier and a bit more sunny! Temperatures will continue to hold in the lower and middle 80s.

Beyond that, rain chances stay minimal. There are a couple cold fronts expected next week. The first looks to primarily bring in drier air, but an isolated, light shower can’t be entirely ruled out Tuesday or Wednesday. It will knock our overnight low temepratures out of the upper 60s and into the upper 50s and lower 60s. The next cold front looks to move through on Friday and might bring some folks out of the 80s and down to the upper 70s.
