FORECAST: Warm and humid start to the weekend

Cold front arrive early Sunday


This Weekend: Rain, but not a washout.

Scattered rain and thunderstorms will continue mainly in the Mountains this evening with more widespread rain expected to cross the area through tomorrow morning. Thunder and lightning will be possible from time to time with periodic heavy rain. Tonight and tomorrow morning is where most of the rain will fall for this weekend.


Sunday will be gloomy with overcast skies and rain to start. This will have a high level on the nap-o-meter. By the afternoon we should get a little brighter with a chance for spotty rains showers during the day but most of the rain falls in the afternoon. Highs only in the upper 80's to around 70 degrees due to the lack of sunshine.

Next week: 

We will see another warm-up early in the week with highs in the 70s to near 80° by Tuesday. A strong cold front will move towards the areas Thursday with showers and thunderstorms. The front really cools us off for Halloween. Highs by Friday night into next weekend will be in the 60s for highs lows in the 40s.

The BIG Question?

Tropical Depression 28 has officially formed and will soon be (by tomorrow) Tropical Storm Zeta. It's current path yet again is aimed towards Louisiana by Wednesday as a Tropical Storm but will likely become a hurricane early this week before weakening. This will be a record storm and will tie us with for the most named storms on record (set back in 2005).

Have a great weekend!
