DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — It was an absolutely wonderful weekend in terms of weather, but now it’s time to shake things up. Let’s dive right in!
Tonight: clear skies, low dew points, and northeasterly winds will allow us to be a bit cooler than this weekend. Instead of the 50s, we’ll dip down into our seasonable middle 40s.
Tuesday will bring much of the same as what we saw today, but it will be a touch warmer as winds shift and come from the SE instead of the NE. This will continue over the next few days and bring in even more of that warmth and moisture from the Gulf.
A weak cold front will pass through the SE U.S. and bring a decent chance for showers and storms to the region. Rainfall totals will be fairly light in nature. Because the southern portion of the line of storms is expected to break up quite a bit, our chance for rain is a little lower than previously thought last week. This weather set up will take us way up into the upper 70s with low 80s possible. Despite the scattered storms, I still expect there to be plenty of time with dry conditions for the annual backyard football or other outdoor activities on Thanksgiving Day.
Friday will have lower rain chances with mostly sunny skies and temperatures remaining in the upper 70s.
Saturday and Sunday’s rain chances will be more widespread and likely bring higher rain totals to the Wiregrass. This cold front will bring much cooler temperatures to our area. We’ll drop to the low 70s on Saturday, the upper 60s on Sunday, and eventually the low 60s on Monday with morning showers still possible.
