WEDNESDAY: A cold front will slip south throughout the day, bringing an uptick in rain chances, especially by mid-day and through the afternoon and evening hours. Expect mostly cloudy skies with highs in the 80s; lower to middle 80s north, middle and upper 80s south. Rainfall amounts could total1-2" by early Thursday morning.
THURSDAY: The front that will push south Wednesday will stall and fizzle near the Gulf Coast through the day – expect partly sunny to variably cloudy skies with a chance for downpours at times, but rain chances will be a bit lower compared to Wednesday. Expect a north breeze with highs in the lower to middle 80s.
EXTENDED RANGE: Eventually, the warmer air will win out as a subtropical ridge begins to build over the southeast through the upcoming weekend. Rain chances will taper a bit, but temperatures will recover – likely pushing into the upper 80s to near 90° by the weekend and next week.
