DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Today was the last of those extra cool morning starts as easterly winds bring in more warm air to the Tri-State over the coming days. This also means that our rain chances are going up! Will you escape the upcoming wet weather? Let’s find out.
Friday will start off right around 50 degrees with sunny skies. We’ll remain mostly sunny throughout the day as temperatures move into the middle 70s.
Saturday will be even more mild for this time of year: morning lows in the low-to-mid 50s and afternoon highs in the mid-70s. We’ll keep those mostly sunny skies, and ENE winds will bring even more moisture to the Wiregrass.
Sunday and Monday have a very slim chance for an isolated shower or two, but bet on being dry both days. Temperatures will peak in the middle 70s.
Tuesday should be dry most of the day. A line of storms will be passing through western portions of the Southeast U.S. late in the day; therefore, any rain activity should be confined to the late evening or overnight hours. Temperatures will once again be in the middle 70s.
Wednesday will be the most likely day for showers and storms. We’ll put it at a 40% chance for now, but that will likely be bumped up a bit in tomorrow’s forecast. Considering the South typically sees a higher chance for tornadoes than other parts of the country in November, we’ll be sure to monitor this line of storms very closely.
As long as Wednesday’s line of storms doesn’t slow down, it should be out of here by Thanksgiving Day! At this point, it looks like mostly sunny skies and seasonal temperatures for our turkey day! And that is definitely something to be thankful for.
