Showers and storms will be scattered about the area as a cold front approaches through Wednesday evening. Widespread rain is not expected and the best chances are expected to remain west of I-65. Unseasonably warm weather will continue through the weekend with highs well into the 70s.
TONIGHT - WEDNESDAY:
A few showers/storms will be possible overnight mainly west of I-65 as a cold front approaches from the west. It will be very humid with areas of fog. Expect overnight temperatures around 60 with highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s for Wednesday. Chances for rain will be a bit higher as the front gets closer but the best chances will still be west of I-65. Rain chances will begin tapering off Wednesday evening with skies remaining mostly cloudy. Temperatures Wednesday night will again fall to around 60 with northern sections in the 50s.
THURSDAY - FRIDAY:
The aforementioned front will dissipate leaving warm and humid air in place across the Gulf Coast. Highs in the 70s are expected both Thursday and Friday with partly to mostly cloudy skies expected. Areas of fog will develop each morning. Overnight temperatures will fall into the upper 50s to around 60.
Unseasonably warm weather will continue this weekend. Temperatures well into the 70s with some areas approaching or reaching 80 are not out of the question both Saturday and Sunday. Skies will be partly cloudy to mostly cloudy each day. An isolated shower can't be ruled out especially on Sunday as the atmosphere will be very humid and it will be very easy to squeeze out a shower or two. Temperatures at night will stay around 60 and dense fog will again be an issue late night through the early morning hours.
MONDAY - TUESDAY:
The next work week will start mild. A cold front will approach from the west by late Tuesday into Wednesday. Monday will see a chance of showers/storms with better chances as the front gets closer on Tuesday. Temperatures in the 70s will continue through at least Tuesday, with cooler weather to follow behind the cold front by the middle to end of next week.
