Saturday Night: Storms tomorrow; Watching the Gulf

Weather

Expect a rainy and cooler pattern to the upcoming week.

Tonight: A few early showers may move across the area, but skies will be mostly cloudy otherwise. It will be mild and muggy with lows dropping into the mid 70s. Winds will be light. Low near 74.

Tomorrow: Sunday will serve as a transitional day. One wave will exit the area while another tropical system approaches the northern Gulf. We’re still looking at the possibility of scattered storms mainly in the afternoon. Highs will rise into the lower 90s with heat indices near the 100-degree mark. Winds will be northeasterly at 5-10 mph. High near 91.

Extended: We will continue to be on tropics watch as the workweek begins. Scattered storms will travel across the southeastern portion of the state on Monday, and these storms will be a result of Tropical Storm Sally, which is expected to strengthen into a Category 1 hurricane before making landfall on Tuesday. The biggest impacts to our area will be heavy rain and flash flooding, and this will occur on Tuesday. Gusty winds are likely. More rain will impact us again on Wednesday, but rain chances will begin to taper after that. Stay weather aware!
