High pressure will hold control of the local area today. Radars to our west look scary with showers and storms on going in Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana. Those storms are making slow progress east but are being chewed up and weakened by dry air over the southeast. That means we see more clouds today than anything else all the while warming well into the 80s. Tonight, a cold front gets closer to us bringing with it isolated showers and temperatures in the 60s. Saturday morning, scattered showers and storms will be popping ahead of the front. We're not overly concerned about severe weather but a few storms will try to put down gusty winds and heavy rain. Rain will continue in an off and on fashion for much of Saturday. Showers will likely linger into the first half of Sunday as the front exits east of I-75 around lunch. That's good news for moms, sons, husbands and daughters that have outdoor plans for Mother's Day afternoon. Still have a plan B but at this point our rain focus has shifted to Saturday and Sunday morning. The start of next week is still on target to be cooler than average but very comfortable at the same time. Enjoy and have Happy Mother's Day weekend!

Be safe and have a great Friday!
