More Wet Weather Moving in around Lunchtime

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

Not much activity this morning on FIRST ALERT Doppler radar; but standby for more wet weather later today!  Starting off with mostly cloudy skies - increasing rain coverage by early afternoon; locally heavy rainfall for some neighborhoods possible - a high of 91°.  But good news: we'll finally see a somewhat drier pattern over the next couple of days as high pressure "briefly" builds overhead.  We're not expecting a "complete dry out", but Thursday's rain chances will run 20% - 30% and Friday will be closer to 40% - 50%. Rain chances then trend higher (yet again) for the weekend, as high pressure moves out and an upper low moves across the Gulf of Mexico. For now, we'll go with rain chances around 50% - 60% Saturday, possibly as high as60% - 70% for Sunday. - Diane Deaton, WAFB Storm Team
