It feels like Dothan is home to many forecasts in our history. If that’s the case, then this should be a slam dunk, right?
At 1153AM, ET, Dothan was reporting a temperature of 61 degrees. A thick, anomalous splotch of overcast was situated over southeastern Alabama and the surrounding bits of Florida and Georgia, keeping temperatures in Dothan, Enterprise and the surrounding environs several degrees off the pace of other nearby locations. Flow was generally southerly, though dew points were still quite comfortable, with a lingering cold front from the southern Great Lakes to the High Plains, with more development to follow.
The cold front will stall over the Ohio Valley through the day on Thursday, leading to some warmer temperatures in Dothan. With a broad slow moving trough in the western US, the central Mississippi Valley will be ripe for development. An area of low pressure will develop over St Louis and encourage the southerly flow, making for an even warmer day on Friday.
