Weather

StormTracker Morning Forecast…

Today: Areas of patchy fog this morning. Partly cloudy skies this afternoon. Deep tropical moisture will continue to be pulled in from the Gulf. Rain chances will be around 20% to 30% during the afternoon and evening. Highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s. Heat indices will be in the mid and upper 90s.

Tonight: Clouds will increase and temperatures will be very mild in the lower 70s. An isolated shower cannot be ruled out.

Saturday: Rain chances increase to around 40-50% as deep tropical moisture continues to be pulled in from the Gulf. Heavy rain, frequent lightning and gusty wind will be possible with any stronger storm that develops. Storms will be driven by the heat of the day, which means we’ll have better chances for rain during the afternoon and early evening. High near 88. Overnight temperatures around 72.

Sunday: Rain chances are around 50% to 60%. It won’t be a washout, but we’ll see scattered to possibly numerous showers and storms, mainly during the afternoon and evening hours. Heavy rain, frequent lightning, and gusty wind will be possible with any stronger storm that develops. Otherwise, sun, clouds, and a high near 87.

Memorial Day: Scattered to numerous showers and storms. Some may move in early in the morning and then more storms will likely develop during the afternoon and evening hours. Heavy rain, frequent lightning, and gusty wind will be possible with any stronger storm that develops. It won’t be an all-day washout, but rain coverage will be higher than the weekend. Rain chance is around 60-70%. Otherwise, we’ll see partly to mostly cloudy skies with highs in the mid 80s. Have a “plan b” for any outdoor activities. Be ready to head indoors if a storm finds you.

Tuesday: Rain chances continue to be quite elevated thanks to the upper-level low and an approaching front from the west and very deep tropical moisture. We’ll see clouds and sun with highs in the mid 80s. Scattered to numerous showers and storms. Rain chance is around 60% to 70%.

Wednesday: Rain chances will continue to be elevated. Highs in the mid and upper 80s.

Thursday: Rain chances are around 50% to 60%. Highs will be in the mid and upper 80s.
