Watching moisture in the Gulf of Mexico for rain early next week…
TODAY: Sunny and Cool Morning, Passing Afternoon Clouds. Chance of Stray Evening Showers and Storms. Hi 84.
TONIGHT: Stray Showers and Storms. Lo 67.
SATURDAY: Mix of Clouds and Sun, Hot and Humid. Stray PM Showers and Storms. Hi 88.
SUNDAY: Hot and Humid. Hi 91.
A cooler than average morning for our Friday is starting sunny and bright! This morning is following a tremendous stretch of weather that featured cooler than average weather Wednesday-Thursday and very low humidity. Temperatures start in the middle to upper 40s today, but should rise a little faster than the last few days. Highs today will be in the low to mid-80s with a little more humidity too. A few showers and storms may head east over the mountains later this evening leading to some rain chances later tonight. Ultimately we do not see a widespread chance of rain as the showers and storms will be fighting the unseasonable dry air we have in place.
This weekend has been trending warmer and we are calling for high temperatures in the upper 80s today to near 90° for Sunday. The front that is the focus for showers and storms late today may stall enough to provide another chance for pop-up showers and storms late on Saturday. Similar to today though we do not expect widespread rain. Sunday should then turn drier, but also more humid.
