A weak trough of low pressure is expected to form in the southeast Gulf of Mexico on Monday. As that low moves farther north and east, it will increase our chance of rain, especially on Tuesday.

Numerous to widespread showers and storms are likely on Tuesday. Increased cloud cover and higher rain chances will keep our temperatures very cool for this time of year. High temperatures in many areas will struggle to get out of the 70s. Generally, highs in the upper 70s to low 80s.

By Wednesday, a more typical summer-like pattern returns. Temperatures will warm into the mid 80s with scattered afternoon and evening storms likely.

Warmer conditions return Thursday and stick around through next weekend. Highs will top out near 90 each day with scattered afternoon and evening storms likely.

Overnight lows will remain on the warm and muggy side, upper 60s to low 70s.

Believe it or not, we'll see below normal high temperatures for the next three afternoons. Hotter temperatures return to the area by Thursday. -Bradford
