Temperatures will remain above average tonight and tomorrow. Highs will once again range into the middle 80’s on Wednesday. The upper ridge that has been responsible for the warm trend will finally slide east of us tomorrow night. Significant rain is not expected until Thursday.

Changes Arrive

We are tracking a slow moving cool front that is currently over central Arkansas. This boundary will eventually arrive on Thursday with more seasonable temperatures and a chance of scattered showers. This front is expected to stall along the coast though Saturday. Out temperatures will be cooler, and rain chances will continue through the first half of the weekend. A weak low pressure area will develop along the front on Friday night, greatly increasing our shower probabilities for Saturday.

Down the road

A second cool front will push through Saturday evening. This feature should bring in more fall-like air for Sunday and early next week. There are indications that this boundary may also stall along the coast. That would keep rain chances in the forecast through early next week.

Tropical

The tropics are quiet. One area of cloudiness in the Atlantic is showing a low chance of developing as it heads to the northern Atlantic. This feature will not affect the U.S.
