We will finish out this work week with above average temperatures and humidity. A few spotty showers are possible tomorrow, but the weather looks to be dry and comfortable for Friday Night Football & Bulldog Bash.
This weekend is a different story. We currently tracking two systems– a strong cold front and Tropical Storm Karen in the Gulf. If they interact, areas of heavy rain will be possible in our area late Saturday and Sunday. Where the tropical system makes landfall will be crucial– further west means extra rain for us, further east could keep us dry through Saturday evening.
Tonight: Overnight lows will fall to the mid 60s tonight under partly cloudy skies.
Friday: We will wake up feeling sticky again, much like this morning, and temperatures will rise to the upper 80s during the afternoon. Pop up showers are possible during the afternoon hours, but they will dissipate before evening activities begin.
Saturday: The latest data suggest that we will start off dry on Saturday with chances for rain increasing into the late afternoon and evening hours. Right now, we still have a chance to stay dry for the MSU vs. LSU game, but this is very dependent on the track of Tropical Storm Karen. Regardless, the increase in cloud cover ahead of the approaching cold front will keep us slightly cooler for high temperatures.
Sunday: The best chance for rain looks to be overnight Saturday and early Sunday morning. After the cold front passes, we will see cooler temperatures and clearing skies by the late afternoon. High temperatures are likely to only reach the mid 70s.
Next Week: We will finally see fall-like conditions sneak back into the forecast! Mostly sunny and dry skies will reign for through mid-week, and highs should be in the mid 70s.
