An upper level trough is swinging through the area and triggering scattered rain showers. This, plus ongoing cloud cover will make for a fairly dreary day. Rain activity will start to break apart during the afternoon, but skies should be slow to clear. Given the obstructed skies and a northerly component to our winds, do not expect temperatures to rise much beyond the morning temperatures and we'll top out in the middle 50s.
The transition to a calmer pattern will begin during the overnight hours as an upper level trough drags disturbed weather away with it to our east. A smaller surface high pressure system will gather some strength in East Texas and pass over the Southeastern U.S. between Friday Morning and Saturday Evening. Therefore tonight will see clearing skies and a quick temperature fall into the upper 30s. Friday figures to be a mainly sunny day with an appreciable warm-up into the middle 60s occurring.
