Weak Front to Move Through Tomorrow; Rain/Storms Return After Christmas – Gulf Coast Storm Center

Tonight: Temperatures will range from the lower/mid 40s north to around along the immediate coast. Cloud cover will begin to increase as a weak front approaches from the west.

Tomorrow: Skies will be partly cloudy tomorrow as the front moves through the area. There will also be a chance of a passing shower or two. Highs will climb into the mid 60s to lower 70s, which is well above normal for this time of year. Lows will be in the 40s overnight/Monday morning. The front should move through late tomorrow evening/tomorrow night.

Christmas Eve: Sunday’s front will move offshore; in its wake, high pressure will build in. This will bring cooler/drier air for our Monday. Temps will be in the mid/upper 50s to lower 60s. Overnight, temps will once again  be in the upper 40s to around 50.

Christmas Day: High pressure will shift to our east in response to a trough digging into the Plains, setting up a return flow. This will cause another uptick in temperatures. Daytime temperatures look to range from the mid 60s to lower 70s.

Thursday through Saturday: The trough is going to eject northeast, out of Plains on Thursday. This will bring a front toward the area, and substantially increase rain chances. Widespread showers/storms are looking likely, along with heavy rain (see figure 1). A severe weather threat also appears possible; it is too early to know if this threat will materialize, however.

Rain will continue into the weekend, and possibly into early next week, as the front is porgged to stall.
