Unsettled, Cooler Amid Rainy Periods Continue Late Week (Source: WLBT)

Showers and storms continue to bring impacts to much of the area as we approach the afternoon hours... Fortunately, coverage will eventually decrease by the evening commute. High temperatures will barely reach 70 degrees this afternoon and will fall into the mid 50s overnight as additional showers and storms move through overnight. Most of these showers will be south of I-20.

We’ll catch another break from the rain through much of Thursday and high temperatures will be similar to today, hitting near 70°. Another disturbance moves overhead Friday, which will spark yet another opportunity for showers and storms to wrap up the work week. Temperatures will only make it into the mid 60s and we’ll see the 60s as highs through the weekend as well!

Although cooler, we’ll be mostly dry this weekend, seeing more clouds than sun. Temperatures will eventually drop into the 40s during the morning hours from Sunday through next Tuesday! Sunshine makes a return to the forecast as we wrap up the 7-day period!
