WEDNESDAY: An unsettled pattern emerges with a upticked opportunity for randomly placed showers and storms, virtually, at any point in time through the day. The higher chances will tend to be toward the afternoon and evening hours. A gusty, strong storm or two can’t be ruled out through the day. Highs will be in the lower to middle 80s; lows falling to the upper 60s.
THURSDAY: A weak, nearly stalled front will slip farther south through Thursday – pushing rain coverage down a bit for areas near and north of I-20. Outside of that, expect partly sunny to variably cloudy skies with highs in the lower to middle 80s. Rain chances click up for areas south of I-20 through the afternoon and early evening hours.
EXTENDED FORECAST: The stalled front will stay near and south of I-20 Friday before trekking back north into the weekend. This boundary will continue to help with shower and storm production. While it may not rain all day long – be ready for heavy pockets of rain, gusty winds and lightning. Highs will stay in the lower to middle 80s into the upcoming weekend and start of next week. Localized flooding concerns may become an issue by early next week with the continual opportunities for rain, at times, being quite heavy.
