Thursday Morning: Frosty morning, beautiful and cool afternoon; Weekend rain chances

Weather

StormTracker Forecast…Another beautiful day is in store for us across the Capital City! You can expect sunny to mostly sunny skies with highs in the mid and upper 50s. As for tonight, temperatures will drop into the 30s once again. Some areas, mainly north of the I-10/I-12 corridor, may briefly fall right around freezing. Elsewhere, temperatures will fall into the mid-30s. You may want to protect the plants and pets once again, as frost will still be a good possibility. Clouds will gradually increase overnight and into Friday morning. Friday won’t be as bright as Wednesday and Thursday. Temperatures will be in the upper 50s. We stay dry at least until late Friday night and early Saturday.

Weekend: An area of low pressure is expected to form in the northern Gulf of Mexico and track toward Florida this weekend, which would bring most of the rain to our east. For now, we are forecasting a 50% chance for rain on Saturday and Saturday night and 30-40% on Sunday. Our area may see around 0.50-1.25″ of rain through Monday. These rain totals could change, all depending on where the Gulf low tracks. Highs will be in the 50s and 60s.

Christmas Week: High pressure settles into our area on Monday, which would help clear us out and warm us up. Partly cloudy to mostly sunny on Monday with highs in the 60s. Christmas Eve will be dry and mostly sunny with a high temperature near 69°F. Christmas Eve night and Christmas morning will be cool in the 40s. Santa Claus may run into some patchy fog for his journey to the Capital City. A stray shower may be possible on Christmas Day, but the rain chance is only around 10%.
