Scattered showers through the morning hours
Scattered showers will linger tonight into Wednesday morning. The low pressure system just southwest of us in the Gulf of Mexico, will continue moving slowly though the northern Gulf of Mexico. It will likely stay far enough south that the heaviest rainfall will stay offshore. However, this system will cause winds to pick up from the east and northeast. It will be breezy today with gusts over 20-30 MPH this afternoon and evening. A Gale Warning will be in effect over the water, and these winds could also cause some coastal flooding in low lying areas.
More showers are possible overnight tonight into Wednesday morning. It looks like the rain will gradually taper off by the end of Wednesday afternoon. It will remain cloudy and breezy with highs only in the low 60s. Additional rainfall amounts through the end of Wednesday will likely range from 0.5″-1.5. Any rain on Thursday will be isolated, but it will stay mostly cloudy. Highs will be in the upper 60s to low 70s.
Warmer weather returns on Friday and Saturday with highs in the mid 70s. We’ll hardly see any rainfall by the end of the week and into the weekend.
