StormTracker Morning Forecast…

Today & Tonight: Mostly sunny to partly cloudy with highs in the upper 80s to around 90. Heat indices will be in the low and mid 90s. Afternoon showers and isolated storms are possible as a front begins to stall out over our northern areas. The Storm Prediction Center has areas mainly along and north of I-10/I-12 under a Marginal Risk for severe weather today and tonight. Main threats would be heavy rain, gusty wind, and some hail, but a tornado or two cannot be ruled out. Rain chance is around 20% to 30%, which means most areas will stay dry today. Rain chances increase tonight to around 40%.

Wednesday: The stalled front, along with a passing disturbance will increase our rain chances to around 40% to 50% starting Wednesday morning. A few strong storms may be possible. Rain chances will remain elevated through Memorial Day, but it won’t be a complete washout. Highs in the lower 80s. Overnight temperatures in the 60s and 70s.

Thursday: Rain chances drop to around 20%. It will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy with highs in the upper 80s to around 90 again. Overnight temperatures around 71.

Friday: The boundary will lift to the north and tropical moisture will be pulled in from the Gulf. A passing disturbance will trigger scattered showers and storms. Rain chances will be around 40% to 50%. Highs in the upper 80s to around 90. Overnight temperatures around 70.

Saturday: Rain chances increase slightly to around 50% to 60% as deep tropical moisture continues to be pulled in from the Gulf. Heavy rain and gusty wind will be possible with any stronger storm that develops. High near 88. Overnight temperatures around 71.

Sunday: Rain chances are around 40% to 50%, but may have to be increased in the coming days.
