WEEKEND PLANNER: A chilly start to your Saturday with temperatures in the middle and upper 40s; sunshine will prevail again with highs in rebounding into the lower to middle 70s. Another front will move through late Sunday, bringing a few clouds and possibility of a stray shower north of I-20. Many will remain quiet, dry and bright as temperatures warm up into the 70s to near 80.
EXTENDED FORECAST: Behind the third front in a week moves into the region late Sunday into Monday, it'll push temperatures down a few notches Monday, rebounding quickly by Tuesday into Wednesday with sunshine and highs returning to the lower 80s.
TROPICS: A tropical depression or tropical storm could be in the makings in the western Caribbean. Hurricane hunters are scheduled to fly into the system later today. Stalled fronts and high pressure will keep this storm and the disturbance behind it away from the northern Gulf Coast. The stalled front will act as a conveyor belt for clouds and rain to stream northeastward into Florida through the next few days. If the system does garner a name, it’s name would be “Gamma”.
