StormTracker forecast…A surface low pressure system is expected to form in the northern Gulf of Mexico on Friday and track toward Florida this weekend, which means most of the rain, especially the heavy rain, will stay to our east and southeast. For now, we are forecasting a 60% chance for rain on Saturday and Saturday night and 40% chance for wet weather on Sunday.
We can expect off-and-on rain through the day and night on Saturday. An upper-level low will move across the northern Gulf Coast on Sunday, which will keep rain chances elevated. Our area may see around 0.25-1.25″ of rain through Monday — Some areas could see more than that. These rain totals could change, all depending on where the Gulf low ends up tracking. Ultimately, the heaviest rain totals AND the greatest rain coverage should remain to our southeast and east. Highs will mainly be in the 50s thanks to the rain and cloud cover. Stay tuned for changes this weekend. All in all, plan on some wet weather at times this weekend.
We’ll continue to see off-and-on showers on Saturday night and again on Sunday. There may be a brief period of dryness between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m., but showers will pick up after midnight, continuing until tomorrow evening. That is when showers begin to clear. Sunday night looks to be dry and mostly cloudy.
