Look for temperatures to climb a little higher this afternoon despite mostly cloudy skies. Highs in the low and mid 70s can be expected.
Zeta is still forecast to make landfall as a hurricane along the central Gulf coast by this evening. From there, the storm will weaken and the remnants will head in our direction.
A few showers may move in from the south as early as before sunset. However, increasing rain chances will occur tonight into Thursday. Periods of rain are likely. The rain may be heavy at times and this could lead to some isolated flooding. Showers will become less numerous late afternoon Thursday.
Also, strong to severe storms will be possible Thursday. Any storm that becomes severe poses the main threat of damaging wind gusts. Also, an isolated brief tornado can’t be completely ruled out.
The remnants exit to our east by Friday with clearing skies in its wake. Much cooler air moves in quickly with highs only in the 50s Friday and Saturday.
Stay safe and healthy.
