Wednesday, May 7 Forecast Discussion

High pressure is still off to our southeast in the Gulf of Mexico and is sending plenty of warm and humid air our direction. We will really start taping into the humidity overnight into tomorrow as clouds continue to increase and dew points creep into the lower to even middle 60s. This will set the stage for storms to return Friday afternoon.

A cold front will work through the area Friday into Saturday bringing thunderstorms with it. Right now, the best timing looks to be from Friday afternoon through Saturday morning. We could still see a stray shower or storm Friday morning and Saturday afternoon, but that is looking increasingly unlikely. Rain tapers off late Saturday with only a pop-up afternoon storm possible on Mother's Day Sunday.

After a cooler Friday and Saturday where highs will struggle to 80, we should return to the mid 80s for Mother's Day before temperatures start to drop again in advance of and behind our next cold front. In fact, Wednesday looks to be the coolest of the next 7 days with highs only in the 70s.

Rain returns late Monday into Tuesday with our next cold front swinging through the area. This will have the chance to again produce showers and storms as it passes.

The good news is that neither cold fronts are expected to produce severe weather.
