Weather

StormTracker Morning Forecast…

Today: Mostly sunny and mild with highs in the mid 60s. High pressure will temporarily build before our next system begins to move in from the northwest.

Tonight: Clouds increase by morning. Overnight temperatures in the low and mid 40s.

Wednesday: A cold front will begin to approach from the northwest. Highs will be in the mid 60s. Rain chances increase late on Wednesday and Wednesday night. Rain chance during the day is around 20%, but rain chances ramp up Wednesday night/early Thursday to around 60%. A few thunderstorms are possible, but severe weather is not anticipated. Morning temperatures will be in the mid 40s.

Thursday: Clouds may linger in wake of the system. Afternoon temperatures will only be in the 50s. Overnight temperatures will be in the upper 30s.

Friday & Weekend: Cooler with highs in the mid and upper 50s. Overnight temperatures in the 30s. Rain chances return late Sunday as another system prepares to move into the region. Currently, rain chance is around 40%, but we will need to adjust accordingly as it gets closer. We will have to watch the position of the low pressure system, timing of the rain, and timing of the arrival of colder air. Depending on the track of the low, this could bring severe weather and possibly even wintry precipitation to portions of the Deep South – possibly even to Louisiana. Way too soon to talk specifics. It’s only something to watch for now. As it stands, it just appears to be a cold rain, but that could change. Stay tuned!

Next Week: Cold to start, but temperatures will regulate back into the 60s by the end of the work week.
