Wednesday Morning: Clearing Skies Today; Rain Chances Return on Thursday

Weather

StormTracker Forecast…The cold front is well to our south and east this morning, but we’re still dealing with cloud cover. High pressure is settling in to our northwest, which should help clear us out this morning and afternoon, allowing highs to warm into the mid and upper 50s. Mainly clear skies and cold temperatures in the mid and upper 30s along and north of I-10/I-12 and lower 40s elsewhere. Be sure to keep your pets warm!

Thursday Morning Lows

The aforementioned cold front will stall out in the Gulf of Mexico. An area of low pressure is expected to develop along the front, which would lead to some wet weather for the north-central Gulf Coast on Thursday and Friday. The bulk of moisture is expected to remain to the east and southeast of our area. Rain chances increase to 20-30% on Thursday and 30% early on Friday. Otherwise, expect mostly cloudy skies with highs in the 50s on Thursday and 60s on Friday.

Thankfully, this weekend will be dry and pleasant. Temperatures will warm into the upper 60s and lower 70s, which will be great for holiday shopping!

Our next rainmaker arrives on Monday. This system may lead to strong to severe storms, so we will be monitoring the situation very closely in the coming days. Ahead of the front, temperatures will be in the mid-70s before falling into the 50s behind the front.
