Wet weekend in the making?

Good Wednesday, folks. The past week or so of weather has been nothing short of awesome. Talk about a great start to the fall season! This has been right up my alley. Things are changing, though, as we roll through the rest of the week: Raindrops return to the forecast.

Today will feature mostly cloudy skies, with scattered showers and thunderstorms. These shouldn’t be terribly widespread, but the umbrellas should be by your side. Let our radars help you dodge the drops:

Our temps will be determined by how many showers and storms form where you live. Areas getting rain might struggle to get to 70 degrees. If the rains miss where you live, low and mid-70s will be the rule. Still, that’s not half bad.

Highs will rise toward 80 for Thursday and Friday, as winds become southwesterly. That will be a moist wind and continue the chance for scattered boomers.

A strong cold front drops in to start the weekend. This will give us widespread showers and storms from late Friday into Saturday. Something tropical is trying to form in the Gulf, and several of the new models show some of that moisture working our way. The Canadian Model has the wildest look:

That would bring a ton of rain and even some wind into the state through the weekend into early next week.

The GFS has been trending in that direction:


This is a setup we need to keep a very close eye on as we get closer to the weekend. I will have updates as needed later today.

Have a good one and take care.
