Rain gear needed Thursday, beautiful fall weekend ahead

It was a nice and warm Wednesday. We started to see increasing clouds and a few showers this evening. We expect the rain showers to increase in coverage overnight and in intensity around mid-morning Thursday. You’ll need your umbrella for Thursday. Depending on exactly where the warm front moves will tell the tale of our temperatures Thursday. If it moves north of the area, we’ll see temps in the low to mid 70s. If it stays just south, we’ll see temps stay in the 60s.

The showers will move east of the area in the early morning hours of Friday. We will see a few lingering showers in the predawn Friday morning hours, but we expect clearing through the day. Friday night football looks like fantastic football weather.

The rain is result of the remnant of hurricane Willa and a low pressure system in the western Gulf of Mexico. The low is expected to move across the northern Gulf of Mexico, right near us. Rain total could be a half of an inch to an inch and a half.

We are expecting a beautiful fall weekend ahead! We are going to see cooler and drier weather through Halloween. Lows will be in the 50s, and highs will be in the upper 60s to low 70s. Enjoy!
