Showers and storms continue through the weekend
Tonight and Tomorrow: Tonight, most of us will remain dry but muggy. Lows will be around 76. Tomorrow, temperatures will climb to the upper 80s between on and off showers and storms. A few could be heavy at times. While an all day wash out is not expected, most of us will see rain at some point through out the day. Have a back up plan to head indoors if you're planning on doing any outdoor activities.
Looking Ahead: This somewhat soggy pattern will continue through the holiday weekend, and even into at least Tuesday of next week before rain chances come down a bit. An upper level trough is parked over the Gulf south and until it begins to move away from the area, rain chances will remain on the higher side. Over the next five days we could see widespread rainfall totals of 2" - 4" with locally higher amounts.
