Despite a mostly cloudy day with even some light rain in the afternoon we reached a high of 65! That's eight degrees above average! This was thanks to a southerly wind between 15-20mph as a frontal boundary was working its way eastward throughout the day.

A frontal boundary as well as an area of low pressure around the Gulf of Mexico will provide between 2-3" of rain throughout the weekend

Overnight there will be some isolated showers with lows in the middle and upper 40s; come Saturday the front stalls right on top of us and we'll have steady rains with highs in the middle to upper 50s. Overnight we'll be holding around 50 with a wave of low pressure riding along the front and bringing moisture from the Gulf of Mexico with it. This means we can easily see an inch or two of rain into Sunday morning and leading into the afternoon. Highs will just be in the middle 50s with heavy rain in the afternoon. For this potential of heavy rain(between 2-3" of rain may fall by Sunday evening) there is a flood watch in effect from Saturday afternoon until Sunday evening.

This low finally pulls away by Monday morning and high pressure moves into the area; it will be in the middle 50s with clouds giving way to sunshine in the afternoon, but Tuesday and Wednesday shall be sunshine-filled with a southerly flow as temperatures will be in the middle 60s.
