Cloudy & Mild

Clouds have stayed with us at times today and we have enjoyed very pleasant temperatures. We have also enjoyed a light n’east breeze. The clouds are lingering as the front has stalled in the northern Gulf. Showers are showing up on radar off Lousiana, with no significant rain in our area yet. A secondary cold front is tracking through the mid-south that will bring much cooler air
later this week.

Tuesday Showers ?

Clouds and moisture will increase tonight. We only see a 30% chance of rain for  this evening, as the front will stay stalled just to our s’east over the Gulf. Spotty showers are also possible on Tuesday, with more significant rain to our south. We expect light rain or sprinkles with this system. Totals should be less than .25” in most areas. Rain chances end Tuesday evening with the passing of a weak
front.

Much Cooler Trend

A stronger front, the second in a series of three cold fronts, pushes through Wednesday morning. Much colder air moves in, especially with our overnight lows. Lows will be in the 40’s Wednesday night. A reinforcing front will push through Friday with even more cool air for the weekend. This front will bring very little cloud cover and no rain. Highs will struggle to reach 70 and lows will
be in the 40’s through the weekend. Skies will be mostly clear.

Tropical Storm Lorenzo

TD #13 is now Tropical Storm Lorenzo in the open waters of the central Atlantic.  This feature is not expected to affect the U.S.
