High pressure is hanging on to the local area, keeping rain activity nearly non-existent tonight and even through most of tomorrow, despite the approach of Tropical Storm Karen over the central Gulf. Scattered clouds will yield to partial clearing late tonight. Temperatures will be quite a bit above average, with lows only between the mid 60s and lower 70s. Saturday will feature periods of sunshine, with a possible gradual increase in cloud cover later in the day. Most of the rain chances should hold off until after sunset at the earliest. Highs will be warm in the mid 80s to around 90°. Western areas may have a few showers and rain late in the day, but impacts from Karen will become more evident early Sunday starting in western areas, then spreading eastward with clouds, showers, rain, a few possible strong storms, and occasional breezes near the coast. A front will sweep all the unsettledness aside by late Monday.
