Hi there, I'm Meteorologist Jennifer Lambers with the latest look at your forecast.
It was a wet & stormy day today across the Gulf Coast, scattered showers really picking up in the afternoon. Daytime highs warmed up into the upper-80s and lower 90s, despite the showers and thick cloud cover. Heading into this evening, the chances for scattered storms diminish after sunset, but an isolated shower can’t be ruled out.
Overnight, skies will stay partly cloudy with overnight lows in the lower-to-mid 70s.
For your Thursday, scattered showers and thunderstorms pick up once again – mainly in the afternoon. Daytime highs will once again be in the upper-80s and the lower 90s. Inland spots have a higher chance of seeing rain tomorrow. The SPC has our area outlined in a general thunder risk (0/5).
Checking in the Tropics, we could have Tropical Storm Fay forming off the coast of North Carolina in the next day or so. As an area of low pressure moves into the Atlantic, it will meet a conducive environment for development. If it forms, it will move NNE towards New England – not effecting the Gulf Coast.
For the rest of the week, we will continue to see sunshine with a mix of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoons. We will also gradually warm up as well, with daytime highs going above average and sticking in the mid-90s.
Have a great weekend!
