Dothan Area Weather Forecast Jun 21 updated

Near Term [Through Tonight]...

Afternoon convection will diminish after sunset, with little synoptic forcing to keep it going without daytime heating.

Best rain chances through early evening will be in corridor from SE Alabama into the eastern Big Bend.

Short Term [Sunday Through Monday Night]...

A couple of weak shortwaves will result in above average rain chances along and away from the seabreezes each afternoon.

The greater coverage of showers and thunderstorms will mean slightly cooler afternoon temperatures than recent days.

Expect middle 90s to be common area-wide.

Long Term [Tuesday Through Saturday]...

A series of weak shortwaves around the base of a broad trough will
continue the trend of above average rain chances through mid to
late week.

Towards the end of the week models show an area of low pressure lifting out of the Gulf, though the exact placement is disagreed upon.

Nonetheless, there remains a potential for high rain chances along the Gulf coast towards the end of the week.

Aviation...

Scattered thunderstorms will impact area terminals through the
early evening, with gusty winds possible.

Otherwise, VFR conditions should prevail through the forecast period outside of brief MVFR visibility around sunrise.

Marine...

The northern Gulf will generally be dominated by high pressure and
southwesterly flow for several days.

Wind and seas should remain below headline levels.

Fire Weather...

Hazardous fire weather conditions are not expected through next week.

Hydrology...

All area rivers remain below action stage this afternoon.

Even with higher than average rain chances over the next several days, the QPF amounts should not result in significant river rises.
