DOTHAN, Ala (WTVY) Keeping our focus on this Saturday, as we anticipate a storm system to pass through the Wiregrass during the late afternoon/early evening hours of our Saturday.
Friday looks to contain a fair amount of cloud cover with a few scattered showers and some thunderstorms here and there will be possible.
As we go into Saturday morning, we begin to see a few spotty showers and few storms. During this time, the main line of storms will be to our west.
Once the later afternoon arrives, we will begin to see more intense thunderstorms, with heavier rain and gustier winds. These conditions last into the later hours of the evening. Some areas may experience heavy downpours. Frequent lightning will be likely within the thunderstorms as well.
As for the tornado threat, most of the potential for tornadoes will be to our west in Mississippi and Louisiana in the early morning hours.
However, that potential will still hover over Alabama once we approach the afternoon. The threat primarily looks to be more in northern/central Alabama, but a few rogue thunderstorms ahead of the main storm line will carry conditions for possible tornadoes around the Wiregrass as well.
Once this system makes its exit, we see the severe weather threat diminish, however there still will be leftover rain showers and overcast skies. Sunday afternoon looks rainy again and we can expect overcast conditions for the upcoming week as well.
