Not a bad weekend overall, though. Temperatures warm to near average Monday and Tuesday with only isolated showers or thundershowers each day. Wednesday daytime is dry but there could be some rain developing overnight Wednesday into Thursday morning. Temperatures are cooler for the mid to late week.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front will move in from the northeast this evening with showers and thundershowers persisting through the evening. Sunday is cooler behind the front. The front washes out over us Sunday but it could trigger a few showers during the day.

High pressure settles in Monday and temperatures warm to near average. There is just enough instability for a few showers and thundershowers to pop up in the afternoon. A cold front moves in from the north Tuesday. It looks mostly dry but we can't rule out an afternoon shower or thundershower.

Cooler air moves in Wednesday but the front stalls not too far to our south. This could generate some rain Wednesday night into Thursday morning. The guidance on that possibility is not clear at this time though. Thursday afternoon and Friday should be dry and cool.

Tropical Storm Arlene is in the southeastern Gulf of Mexico and is moving toward Cuba. It will not have any effects on our weather.
