Friday Forecast

Good Friday morning everyone and TGIF!

It's a quiet start on radar with just a few mid to upper clouds cruising by our skies. We'll see those increase by the day's end, but still look forward to a lot of sunshine for the day.

Temperatures are chilly out the door this morning as we're waking up in the 30s and 40s, not quite as cold as yesterday. But it's cold enough to dress warmly like yesterday out the door! Under the mostly sunny skies today we'll warm up just a bit more than yesterday and reach highs near 60 degrees, still seasonally cool.

We're cutting off the colder northerly flow today as high pressure slides by to the east. While we'll still have some cooler air around today, warmth and moisture are building to our west over Texas and Louisiana where our next storm system is taking shape. It'll move across the Northern Gulf states through today and tonight.

Eventually by tomorrow the warm front with this system will be in place to our south to produce a few scattered light showers throughout the daytime tomorrow. However, the heavier, more soaking rains, associated with the low and cold front will move in after sunset on Saturday and bring rain overnight into early Sunday morning before the system slides off to the west after Sunday morning. There's potential for about 2-3" of rain over the Panhandle by the storms end on Sunday. Colder air will return on the back side of this and start to take temperatures back down below seasonal average Sunday afternoon and into early next week.

Bottom Line...
For today, mostly sunny skies with clouds increasing in the afternoon and highs near 60°. Your 7 Day Forecast will feature rain chances increasing throughout the day on Saturday, but not becoming likely until after sunset and wrapping up through Sunday morning.
