Tuesday, August 13 Forecast Discussion

Rain has been plentiful for a lot of us today, and more rain will be with us through the evening before it tapers off to just a few showers overnight. Rain will again pick back up in earnest late morning/early afternoon Wednesday as the front passes through the area. Behind it, significantly cooler and drier air will arrive.

Temperatures look to take a nose dive starting Thursday morning where we could be talking about a few upper 50s in our cooler locations! Lows will slowly creep back up towards 70 by the start of next week, but will remain for an extended period in the 60s. Highs will also remain in the 80s until we hit the weekend.

After Wednesday, rain chances drop significantly as the front stalls along the coast. Besides a lingering shower on Thursday, a stray shower or storm could develop Friday through next Tuesday, but most of that time period looks to remain dry.

Worthy of mention, the National Hurricane Center is watching a tropical wave in the southern Caribbean. It has a long way to go and needs to get better organized, but it could impact the Gulf Coast this weekend, so it is something to monitor closely.
