HEAVY RAIN LIKELY AT TIMES THIS WEEKEND… Rainfall totals through Monday will be in the 2 to 4 inch range with isolated higher amounts being possible. An area of low pressure developing to our south across the Gulf of Mexico will allow tremendous amounts of moisture to move across our region, meaning rain will be likely from early Saturday morning though early Monday morning. Temperatures will consistently be in the “miserable” range with all the rain around. Overnight lows will be in the upper-40s with daytime highs in the 50s. While rain and isolated instances of flash flooding will be concerns this weekend, the overall risk of convective severe weather (tornadoes and damaging winds) remains very low, if not zero in most spots. We will be in the cold sector, north of the warm front associated with this Gulf low, meaning severe weather won’t happen.
WHAT TO EXPECT TONIGHT AND FRIDAY… No rain issues are expected overnight or on Friday. Temperatures will be around 32° by daybreak Friday morning, rising to around 60° by 2PM. Clouds will be on the increase across the region throughout the day ahead of the rising rain chances late Friday evening.
