Surge of Moisture from the south will keep rain chances at 30% into the late evening tonight finally dropping out by 10PM. Lows bottom out in the upper 30s and low 40s with partly cloudy skies. Rain chances pick right back up as we move into Saturday afternoon to 30%; Highs in the low 60s. This is due to a developing warm front within the central Gulf that will lift towards the Gulf Coast through the next couple of days. By Sunday, rain chances fly up to 60% however severe weather is not expected due to our rather mild/ stable mid level shelf. Expect "London/Seattle" like rainfall with wide spread light to moderate showers through the day into the overnight. Highs will only reach the upper 50s. We will clear out for Monday morning and have a rather sunny day with a partly cloudy night fallowing after. By Tuesday, temps pick up and with that, so do the rain chances. Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday, an upper level low will develop a cold front that will extend from the Ohio River Valley. With temps expected to flirt with the low 70s both days, there is potential for force lifting which could allow for a few thunderstorms to pop up. For now, I am keeping rain chances between 30%-40% for Tuesday and Wednesday but once the models update, I may be increase rain chances for those days. By Thursday morning though, we are back to clearer weather with mostly sunny skies highs will keep to the upper 60s and low 70s; Lows, in the low 40s.
