Excess cloud cover will be a major part of the weather forecast for the next 24 to 36 hours, but associated shower action will be spotty and light in nature. A slow-moving cold front made gradual progress through most of the area, causing temperatures to be colder now than they were this morning in most cases. Upper-level winds are aiding in keeping low-level moisture rising and keeping an overcast trend in place, all the while preventing the front from swiftly moving away. As a result, waves of Gulf moisture will ride along the frontal system and produce occasional light rain, showers, and drizzle for the region through most of Thursday. Rain totals should remain less than half an inch. Lows tonight will fall to around 50°, and highs won’t climb very much Thursday, only to the range of 55° to 60° across the area.
