After 11 of the last 13 days having high temperatures in the 90s, the heat will soon abate some as rain becomes an even bigger player in our forecast.
The reason for this change is a cluster of thunderstorms over the western Gulf of Mexico.
That’s a weak area of low pressure that’s made for very heavy rain today in east Texas and Louisiana.
Over the next couple of days, that system will track northeastward toward Middle Tennessee, bringing more clouds and quite a bit of rain to the Mid South.
Notice how the rain chance will ramp up accordingly, especially Thursday and Friday.
As for tonight and tomorrow, expect spotty showers and storms to dissipate by 9pm this evening.
They’ll reform tomorrow around midday.
Wednesday will bring a slightly better chance for showers and thunderstorms as our system in the Gulf of Mexico approaches. FUTURECAST reflects that.
Then, Thursday through the start of the weekend will be wetter than normal. It won’t rain the whole time, but clouds will easily prevail helping to keep temperatures in check.
Watch Lisa Spencer tonight at 10pm. She’ll have a new set of data to share with you, showing where the greatest likelihood for storms will be tomorrow.
