Rain chances increasing this week
Good Wednesday. Our last day of spring will be similar to the last few days in that we will be warm and humid with highs around 90, and a few storms this afternoon. The difference today is some moisture streaming in this morning from a low in the Gulf of Mexico. That may allow a few isolated showers to move in this morning.
Our rain chances increase dramatically Thursday. Summer will officially begin at 6:07AM eastern. An approaching front will produce scattered showers and thunderstorms on and off from late morning through the evening. The clouds and rain will keep us MUCH cooler with highs in the low 80s Thursday.
That front will wobble back and forth keeping rain chances in our forecast at some level through Monday.
Friday the rain will hold off until late in the day, then we will have scattered showers and storms for our Friday evening through the day Saturday. Highs both days will be in the mid to upper 80s.
Sunday, the front will retreat north, dropping our rain chance to about 20%, and we will return to the low 90s.
The front will sag south Monday, however, and more showers and storms will return to start next week.
