Friday Night: Another cool night and a pleasant Saturday; Heavy rain threat next week

Weather

Tonight: Clear and super nice. Morning temperatures will be in the low and mid 60s – enjoy!

Saturday: A pleasant start to Saturday – great for early morning tailgating. Mostly sunny and warm during the afternoon with highs in the upper 80s. Overnight temperatures won’t be as cool, but still in the upper 60s.

Sunday: Southerly winds will return by Sunday, which means it won’t be as pleasant on Sunday. Also, there is the chance for a scattered showers. Rain chance is around 40-50% on Sunday, but the best chance for rain will be south of I-10.

Next Week: A disturbance may move in to our west and southwest. Rain chances are around 50-60% each day with highs in the mid 80s. Heavy rain may be a concern. See the Tracking the Tropics discussion below. Mornings will be near 70.

Tracking the Tropics: A disturbance is expected to move into the southern Gulf in the next few days. The National Hurricane Center gives it a high chance for development once it moves into the western and southwestern Gulf. Whether it develops or not, it may move toward Texas and Louisiana, which means it will bring heavy rain to the northwestern Gulf Coast by early next week. We’re watching closely.
