Partly Cloudy and Breezy Conditions with Scattered Showers and Thunderstorms This Afternoon

Partly Cloudy and Breezy Tonight

After dodging the Crossroads for the past two days, showers and thunderstorms finally made their appearance here this Friday. Meaningful, though localized, rains of up to a half to 3/4 of an inch have been observed throughout the area, but those showers will die quickly around sunset. A gusty southeast wind insures Gulf moisture will remain on tap for more scattered showers and thunderstorms this weekend. Thereafter, a weak upper level ridge will limit rain chances until a series of upper level disturbances returns rain chances the second half of next week. Highs will be in the lower to middle 90s, with lows remaining in the middle 70s.
