Weather

StormTracker Morning Forecast…

Today: Dense Fog Advisory in effect through 10 AM. Be sure to add extra time to your morning commute, use your low beams, and add plenty of space between you and the car in front of you. Visibility may drop to 1/2 a mile or less. Sun and clouds today with highs in the mid 80s. We could see a spotty shower, but most will stay dry.

Tonight: Areas of fog will likely develop overnight. Otherwise, partly cloudy with lows in the mid 60s to lower 70s.

Wednesday: Mostly sunny with highs in the mid and upper 80s. Overnight temperatures in the 60s and 70s.

Thursday & Friday: Rain chances are on the rise thanks to a passing disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico. For now, we are forecasting a 40% chance for rain on Thursday and 40% on Friday. All in all, rain chances look highest on Thursday and Friday. Highs will be in the mid 80s. Overnight lows in the 60s and 70s.

Weekend: A weak front moves through on Saturday. It will drop humidity and temperatures just a notch. Rain chances remain low this weekend. Highs will be in the low and mid 80s. Overnight temperatures in the 60s.

Next Week: We are monitoring the potential for a cold front to pass next week. Long-range weather models do not agree on the timing or strength of the front. Something to watch for now. The Climate Prediction Center is calling for below-normal temperatures next week into the first few days of November.

Tracking the Tropics: Epsilon has formed in the Atlantic. It will not be a threat to our area. A trough of low pressure, associated with a weak low pressure has a low chance for formation as it gradually drifts across the Gulf of Mexico. It will likely not develop thanks to high wind shear. The wind shear will likely cause a bit of the energy to move this far north, which will increase our rain chance on Thursday and Friday.
