Happy hump day, and what a beautiful day it was! Seasonal conditions of sunny skies and highs in the mid to upper 70's today. As for your Thursday, very similar but a change is coming. Thursday we will start the day mostly sunny with calm winds. As the day progresses winds will pick up out of the south-southeast ahead of the front moving through. Winds in the afternoon will likely be between 10 and 15 mph with gusts up to 25+.
Expect clouds to begin building tomorrow afternoon as moisture from the Gulf begins piling in. Into Thursday night, we should be mostly cloudy with the system moving in later overnight and into early Friday morning. As for the impacts of this system, we will see scattered rain showers throughout the day Friday. Some of these could be in the form of thunderstorms, but nothing severe detected as of now. Moving into the weekend, that low will move north and into Canada. Following it will be another, more impactful low pressure system, that will move in from our southwest.
Obviously, we are a number of days out from Saturday night and Sunday, but I will be keeping a close eye on what impacts this could bring to our area. Until then, enjoy one more day of these seasonal temperatures before some scattered showers arrive Friday and into the weekend. Sunday looks to be much heavier rains with thunderstorms and a severe potential. Stay tuned on our Twitter (@SecretCityWX) and here on our site for the latest updates on this weekend's severe potential outlook.
