Well, the severe threat certainly looks less now than it did earlier this morning. An area of low pressure continues to move across the northeast gulf, a bit more south than originally thought. This is good news as it takes our severe threat way down. That said, a few strong to severe storms will still be possible across the southeastern big bend, but the threat will be isolated through the evening drive. All of that doesn’t mean we’ll miss out on rain; scattered showers and pockets of heavy rain will be off and on area wide through Friday morning. Meanwhile, skies will stay mostly cloudy and the wind will kick gusts near 15-20mph. Tonight, the aforementioned low will be east of the area and dry air will start filtering in. Some of you may still be left with rainy bits but nothing giant through Friday morning. Friday afternoon the clouds will break away showing more sun with highs close to 70°. Pleasant conditions drive us into the weekend with mostly sunny skies through Sunday and highs in the 70s & 80s. Our next rain chance comes with another front by Thursday of next week.
Be safe and have a great Thursday!
