Thursday, December 26 Forecast Discussion

Skies have been clear to mostly sunny as we have worked through the day thanks to high pressure just off to our north keeping clouds at pay. That area of high pressure will slide east overnight and into tomorrow, allowing more clouds to arriving and thicken as we work through our Friday. Friday will be dry, but an area of low pressure will be developing in the Gulf of Mexico.

The Gulf low will start moving ashore on Saturday, heading towards Mobile and the Florida Panhandle. We will be on the backside of this low, so no severe weather and likely no extremely heavy rain is expected, but we will see rain showers Saturday afternoon through Sunday morning with rainfall totals of around 1 inch possible with higher amounts the further east you head. Rain clears out by Sunday afternoon, but one more shot at rain is possible on Monday.

A cold front will arrive on Monday and bring one last shot at rain, and will also bring another cold blast with it as highs for New Year's Eve struggle to warm out of the 40s. Our next system will arrive on Thursday and bring with it also a shot to see rain showers.
