Rounds of showers and storms continue as our front remains stalled out over the Gulf Coast states... Although we’ve mainly seen showers to start our Tuesday, storms are drifting northward off the Gulf Coast & an upper-level disturbance will bring another round of storms to the area tonight. Isolated strong-severe storms will be possible in this timeframe, especially in areas along and south of I-20.

Temperatures will reach the 70s today, but only the 60s Wednesday afternoon as lingering showers will remain possible. We’ll finally dry out by Thursday as high pressure starts to build in! Highs will rebound quickly as a result, taking us back into the upper 70s by Thursday and Friday afternoon.

We’ll be even warmer, and still dry, by this weekend... Highs will reach the low-mid 80s both days and plenty of sunshine is in the forecast. Eventually, winds will shift back out of the south ahead of our next system, set to bring showers and storms back to the forecast by the start of next week.
