DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — A few storms are moving through our northern counties this evening. We’ll be dry overnight with temperatures around 70 degrees.
Saturday will have a few scattered storms around noon, but then we will see the first band of rain from Tropical Storm Cristobal during the evening hours. Rain will continue through Sunday and will be heavy at times.
Monday and Tuesday will also see plenty of chances for rain, and temperatures will return to the mid-to-upper 80s.
Wednesday and beyond will see a decrease in rain chances, but we won’t be pulling them from the forecast entirely just yet.
To sum up the big weather story this weekend, here are a few things you need to know. The highest rain totals will be where the rain bands train over the same area. This is most likely to our south along the Panhandle and to our west from Mobile to New Orleans. There is a threat for some quick, spin-up tornadoes, so have the WDHN weather app downloaded and allow it to send you severe weather alerts. While our chance for flash flooding has significantly decreased, still avoid those areas that you know are particularly prone to flooding. Be safe this weekend, Wiregrass residents! I’ll be monitoring the situation very closely, so send your questions or pictures of this weekend’s weather to @MatthewWine_wx on Twitter or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
