A few Showers Wed, More Thursday, Heavy Rain this Weekend 10:40 p.m. Tue 16 September 2014
Spotty showers Tuesday brought a half-inch of rain to parts of Bryan County, but most areas just saw lots of towering cumulus and felt a very humid air mass.
The weak front mentioned in yesterday’s forecast will dissipate during the next 24 hours, but its remnants along with daytime heating should generate a few more pockets of rain tomorrow.
A better chance of showers or storms come Thursday as a complex of storms moves down form the north, before rain leaves the forecast for Friday.
The most potent system arrives for the weekend; a mid-level low, moisture from the remains of Hurricane Odile and low-level Gulf flow, and an advancing frontal boundary set the stage for some potentially heavy rainfall Saturday evening through Sunday. The steering currents will be quite weak and there’s a possibility the rainfall could continue into Monday as the front drifts slowly southward.
There’s also been a shift in the longer-range computer guidance into next week, and our next fall cold front is looking weaker, meaning a warmer pattern looks more likely than not.
