A stalled front will continue to bring high rain chances and unusually low temperatures to start the weekend. A high pressure system will gradually build late in the weekend and into next week. With that: temperatures will grow and rain chances will fall to lower levels.
FRIDAY NIGHT FORECAST: Expect scattered to numerous showers. Lightning risk is low but not zero. Rain amounts will likely average around 0.5 inches but isolated higher amounts may occur in downpours. Temperatures will hover in the upper 60s and low 70s with light east breezes.
SATURDAY FORECAST: Expect showers, some heavy, and isolated thunderstorms. Rain amounts will exceed 0.75 inches in most areas and poor-drainage flooding may occur where downpours persist most. Also expect continued cool temperatures (highs: upper 70s and low 80s) and light east breezes.
EXTENDED FORECAST: Sunday and Monday will likely feature variable clouds and a scattered coverage of showers and thunderstorms (rain chance: 40%). Daily rain chances will slip to a seasonable 30% for most of the rest of the week. Daily high temperatures will grow to mainly the mid and upper 80s through the period.
TROPICS: Tropical Storm Erin will likely remain weak, or perhaps degenerate into a remnant system, over the open waters of the central Atlantic Ocean into next week. A tropical wave of low pressure in the southern Gulf of Mexico may become a tropical depression or storm this weekend.
