We’re working a cold front through on April 1. It will be enough to spark a few showers and thunderstorms, especially east of Jefferson and Brooks counties through the early afternoon. We’re not looking at a gigantic severe threat, but a few of those storms shortly after lunch may put down small hail, wind and rain. Meanwhile, it’ll be a warm one with highs in the upper 70s. Tonight, the front keeps sliding east with a taste of drying takes over. Tuesday will start in the low 50s but end in the low 80s with plenty of sun to go around. The middle of the week will be an active one as an area of low pressure lifts north from the Gulf Wednesday night. It’ll start with widespread showers and isolated thunder late in the day and lead into on going rain, heavy at times, for much of Thursday. Severe weather isn’t much of a concern at this point; this one will be more of a heavy rain maker. Early estimated totals through Friday morning are between 2 and 4” with higher amounts. Through all of the midweek rain highs will still get into the 70s for highs and 50s and 60s for lows. Friday afternoon we will clear out paving the way for a nice looking weekend ahead with more sun and highs in the 70s.

Be safe and have a great Monday!
