It's going to be a cloudy finish to the workweek, and a little bit warmer as well as daytime highs will top in the low 60s. There's also a good shot of storms as we progress through the afternoon, rainfall estimates of 1-2 inches are possible A surface low is forecast to track across the Northern Gulf later today, with a trailing cold front that's set to swing through the region tonight. Rainshowers along with a few embedded thunderstorms will ramp up ahead of this system starting this afternoon and not winding down until around midnight. Severe storms are not anticipated due to the lack of instability to support them. We're not ruling an isolated severe storm south of I-10, but a widespread outbreak is not in the works.
Tomorrow we wake up to windy conditions with highs remaining in the 50s. By Sunday morning we fall to freezing, skies will clear with maximum readings struggling to reach into the 50s. Then for New Year's Eve, the cloud cover thickens with stray showers possible New Year's Eve night. The rain becomes steady by New Year's Day as another storm system moves in.
