After a warm and humid afternoon, a cold front will march into the area bringing a chance of showers and storms. Some of the storms may be severe with damaging winds and large hail. The hail could be as large as golfballs in the stronger storms. The best chance of seeing these types of storms will be closer to Hwy 84, or well inland. Closer to I-10 and the beaches, the storms won't be nearly as numerous, and some areas may not see any rain at all. Hail will be the primary threat through this evening.
After midnight, the cold front will push through the area, bringing a return to lower humidity and sunshine for Tuesday. Highs will reach the low to mid 70s. Temperatures will trend cooler for the rest of the week. Highs around 70 can be expected Wednesday, with upper 60s for Thursday and Friday. Friday will see a return to chances for rain, ahead of the next storm system, that could bring another risk of severe thunderstorms on Saturday. It is still early, but the predicted weather pattern definitely hints at SOME threat for severe storms. We'll keep an eye on it.
After Saturday, cooler, drier weather returns for Sunday into early next week.
