Grab the umbrellas... We’ll need them Thursday & Friday.

The rain is gone for now & we’re left with clouds and mild temperatures for the rest of our Wednesday... High temperatures will reach right around 60° along I-20, with warmer temperatures to the south, cooler temps to the north. Although we should remain mostly dry through the rest of the day, rain chances will trend upwards through the overnight period. You’ll definitely want to keep the umbrella with you as we approach the end of the week as rain is likely both Thursday and Friday! A few rumbles of thunder are also possible...

Outdoor plans? Might wanna save those for today & Saturday 😂

We’ll catch a quick break on Saturday from rain, but that break will be short-lived. As a warm front lifts back into the region by the second half of the weekend, temperatures and rain chances will climb once again.

Anticipate scattered showers and storms Sunday with our next system bringing a better chance for rain into Monday. Showers and storms Monday-Tuesday could even be on the stronger side, which is something we’ll be keeping an eye on as we get closer!

First Alert Forecast: rain to return late week
