Monday Morning: Drying out for now before our next system moves in

Weather

StormTracker Forecast…Morning fog will begin to lift by the mid-morning hours. Clouds are expected to gradually break into the afternoon hours. Temperatures will top out in the mid and upper 60s. If clouds don’t break, temperatures may be a few degrees cooler. Either way, we stay dry today. The weather will be quiet and seasonal tonight. Some areas of patchy fog may develop by daybreak. Otherwise, stars and clouds with temperatures dropping into the mid-40s.

We stay mostly dry during the day on Tuesday before rain becomes likely late Tuesday night and into early Wednesday as our next system moves in from the west. Rain will taper throughout the morning hours on Wednesday. Rainfall totals will be manageable – we are not expecting any flooding issues. Our area will become mostly dry by the afternoon.

Thursday will be slightly cooler thanks to a cold front that passed on through. We stay mostly dry through the day before our next system arrives on Friday. An area of low pressure is expected to develop in the Gulf and track to the northeast toward the north-central Gulf Coast. Where the system sets up and tracks will determine how much rainfall that we get. For now, we are forecasting around a 50-60% chance for rain on Friday. Rain chances may go up or down, all depending on where this low tracks. Stay tuned for changes.

We clear out for the weekend and it will be quite pleasant and mild. Temperatures in the 60s to around 70 by Sunday.
