02/10 – Brantly’s “Cloudy with Scattered Showers” Wednesday Forecast
High pressure draped across Florida and portions of the Gulf of Mexico, with clockwise flow, is sending moisture from the northern Gulf into our region. This setup has been and will continue to produce muggy and warm conditions locally. Low-level and mid-level clouds seem dominant over any sea fog at the moment, but we still have some opportunity before sunrise to see some dense patches fog over the water and right along the coast.
Moving into Thursday, our next weather system, currently located along the Pacific Coast, will track eastward into southern Texas. This will cause the cold front in central Louisiana to slowly push south into the area. Expect nearly 100% coverage with a mix of showers and thunderstorms. Some areas could see an inch or 2 of rainfall throughout the day. This will be the last day of above normal temps for a while. Cooler air pushing in behind the front will keep highs on Friday down to low 50s and low 60s. Lingering showers will likely persist through probably early afternoon before finally shifting south and east.
This upcoming weekend high temperatures will only be in the upper 50s with overnight lows dropping down to the lower 30s by Sunday morning. Next week, we will see temperatures gradually start to get back into the mid 60s as rain chances dropped back down to just 20 to 30% each day.
