Wednesday, September 18 Forecast Discussion

Clouds have been slow to break up today as moisture being brought in from the southeast just above the surface has contributed to those clouds. We will see them thin out a bit tonight, but clouds will be with us through our Thursday.

Temperatures will remain in the mid to upper 80s through Friday before our next cold front arrives. As of now, the timing still looks to be Friday early evening, which means some area football games may have to play through some rain.

The bulk of the rain looks to arrive on Saturday as the cold front swings through and as we tap into some tropical moisture from a developing tropical system in the Gulf of Mexico. Forecast models and NOAA's Weather Prediction Center are forecasting potentially over 1.5" of rain through Sunday morning. While we could use the rain, that much rain in a 24 hour period could lead to some flooding concerns across the area.

The front will exit Sunday morning, taking the rain and clouds with it. We will remain dry through at least the middle portion of next week.
