Temps trend up, midweek shower possible
Look for a gradual climb in high and low temperatures through the week.
Today and Tonight: Tuesday will be mostly sunny and warmer with a high temperature returning to the mid 80s. Winds will be light and easterly. Overnight, skies will stay clear with a low in the upper 50s.
Up Next: A weak front and associated upper level disturbance brings the possibility for a shower Late Wednesday into Thursday. Other than that, skies will be mostly to partly sunny with high temperatures in the mid 80s and low temperatures in the low 60s. A slight uptick in humidity may be noticed by week’s end, but it won’t return to the levels felt last week. Quite weather and slightly above average temperatures will continue through the weekend and even into Halloween.
The Tropics: No tropical activity is expected over the next five days.
Forecast Discussion: A pair of weak upper level disturbances will ride across the Gulf Coast between Tuesday and Thursday. With these, some mid-level clouds could show up, but models are showing very limited deep moisture. For that reason, no more than an isolated low-topped shower is expected. The best chance for this would be Late Wednesday/Early Thursday as a weak cold front north of the area draws some moisture in from the Gulf of Mexico. Coastal areas will have the best shot at precipitation. With that returning moisture, we’ll also notice the air not quite as dry and morning lows will reflect that—in the low 60s. Highs will be above average Wednesday through the weekend thanks to the slowly moderating air mass.
