Wet, muggy weather has lingered since the beginning of the week, but an end is finally in sight. It won’t come tonight though, as thunderstorms will move in just after midnight.
This system still carries a “marginal” risk of severe weather, but has steadily weakened over the last few days.
Regardless of severe weather our best chance of seeing strong storms is between 2 AM and 7 AM. Most likely threats remain heavy rain, lightning, and gusting winds. By noon tomorrow cooler and drier air will already be rushing in. Tomorrow’s high will quickly into the low 60s by noon, but will have already fallen into the upper 50s by the evening, and will end up in the low 40s by sunrise. This influx of cooler and drier air will lead to a sunny weekend, with afternoon highs in the upper 50s and low 60s. Clouds will begin moving in again by Sunday afternoon as a warm front from the Gulf moves northward.
