Mid and upper level moisture will likely produce quite a bit of cloud cover across the area beginning this afternoon and continuing into the weekend. A few showers will affect the area Friday into Saturday morning. Thunder will be limited north of an approaching cold front, a little more widespread to the south.
As long as the boundary remains offshore, we’ll be looking at some welcome cooler and less humid weather across the area beginning tomorrow. Likely the coolest spell of weather across the area since early May. Upper level high-pressure centered near northern Mexico will shift towards central Texas and eastern Oklahoma. At the surface, high pressure will still be building in from the northeast. This will generally keep the area dry and on the cooler side. However, the local area will protecting us from an area of low pressure that is still stuck in the western GOM. Some of the models move that tropical disturbance north to northeastward into the central to possibly northern Gulf next week, but there is a lot of uncertainty at this point.
