Rain Chances Return Sunday. So Does Severe Weather Risk.

DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN)– A storm system will bring a chance for numerous downpours and a few strong to severe storms beginning Sunday across the Wiregrass.

The strongest of the activity should hold off until Sunday evening, but a few scattered showers and an isolated storm are possible in the morning hours.

Patchy fog is possible for some locations as morning lows start in the 60s. Afternoon highs make it to the 70s as rain and thunderstorm chances gradually increase throughout the day.

Strong storms become more likely after sunset Sunday. Damaging winds will be the primary hazard.

The first substantial chance of severe weather will be after midnight on Monday morning as storms develop along a lifting warm front. The second window is roughly between 6 a.m. and 12 p.m.

In both of these time frames, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes are possible. Maximum rainfall accumulations are forecast to be between one and two inches, with isolated higher amounts possible where storms repeatedly track over.

While wind shear will be present in a warm, moist environment, instability will be limited. Still, storm development should be able to overcome this limitation.

Conditions will gradually dry out Monday afternoon, and cooler temperatures will arrive by Tuesday morning.

Lows will generally be in the 40s through Friday morning. Highs will be in the 50s Tuesday and in the 60s through Friday. Rain chances return Saturday ahead of the next storm system.
