First Alert Forecast: complex storm system to approach late this coming weekend

A high pressure system will bring dry, warm afternoons through Saturday. A complex storm system (featuring a cold front plus some tropical energy and moisture from a Gulf of Mexico low) will bring an unsettled weather trend as early as Sunday into early next week.

WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY FORECAST: Expect clear to partly cloudy skies and 10%-or-less rain chances. Nights will cool to the 50s and 60s. Days will consistently warm to the low and mid 80s for inland areas and upper 70s and low 80s for the beaches.

FORECAST FOR SUNDAY INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK: Rain chances will grow to 30% for Sunday and possibly higher levels Sunday night and Monday. Isolated thunderstorms may mix. Temperatures will reach the 70s to low 80s amid balmy south breezes Sunday and Monday.

TROPICAL AREAS OF INTEREST: Tropical Storm Jerry will continue to spin in the central Atlantic Ocean and not likely threaten land. A disorganized low pressure system in the Caribbean Sea may grow into a tropical depression or storm as it moves toward the northern Gulf of Mexico coastline late this week. 

First Alert Meteorologists Gannon Medwick, Colin Hackman, Eric Davis, and Iisha Scott will keep you updated.
