Christmas Day across the area has been full of sunshine and some high clouds passing through. We are going to keep the high clouds for the next day before they thicken up as we head into our Friday as more moisture returns ahead of a developing upper level area of low pressure that will spawn a surface low in the Gulf of Mexico.
The surface low looks to develop Saturday and come onshore late Saturday into Sunday along the central Gulf Coast. This means that rain showers look to arrive late in the day on Saturday and be with us for our Sunday as well.
The low will exit late Sunday, but one more small chance at rain is possible on Monday as another upper level low passes over top of us and squeeze out any moisture that is left over. This low will also bring colder temperatures back to the area as New Year's Eve and New Year's Day look to be mirror images of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
