PATTERN CHANGES TO RAINY NEXT WEEK… FINALLY

One more hot day today for our Friday as a cold front moves through from the north. Storms died out just as they got here overnight, so the drought continues into the weekend for some. Temps today will be near 90 for most with a stray passing storm possible.

Drier and cooler air on the way tonight with lows in the upper 50’s to mid 60’s south.

The jet stream is still set to figuratively do a 180 on us — literally a 90 anyway by next week as energy takes the flow from the NW, and digs out a big dip near the gulf, pulling moisture in from the SW early next week.

Waves of low pressure will ride north from the gulf along a stalled front just to our SE. The one thing to watch would be if the stalled front gets too far east next week. But for now, we stand a decent chance of seeing areas of rain by Monday and Tuesday, with rainy weather perhaps lingering into Wednesday and Thursday as well.
