Very wet Christmas with storms

Posted: Updated:

Flood Watch continues across the entire viewing area until 7 a.m. EST Saturday. A nearby cold front along with abundant Gulf moisture combine to bring us showers and storms for Christmas day. Strong storms are possible with gusty winds and heavy rain at times. Areas of flooding/flash flooding will be a concern. Stay off the roads if possible and have a safe holiday! Look for warm highs in the lower 70s in the city (Christmas day record is 75° in 1955; normal is 50°).

The weekend looks decent! The cold front moves north during the day Saturday, reducing our rain/storm chances. Highs are warm again in the lower 70s. The front sags southward Sunday bringing back some scattered showers with highs in the lower 70s.

A low pressure system moves through the area next week bringing periods rain and possibly storms Monday with highs around 70°. Scattered showers could still fall Tuesday and Wednesday with highs in the mid-60s, cooling to the upper 50s by Wednesday.

Thursday and Friday look dry and much cooler with normal highs hovering around 50° and lows in the mid-30s to lower 40s.
