FORECAST IN DETAIL
I suppose the good news is that the worst part of the remnants of Ida (lots of rain) will most likely remain south and east of our area over the next few days. The bad news is that she will still share lots of clouds and breezes with us, and the chance of some showers. With her remnants to our south coupled with high pressure to our north, we'll also have a cool onshore flow kicking in tonight and lasting at least through tomorrow night. But we are still optimistically looking at a nice November weekend ahead.
Today (Tuesday): Ida may not have been a powerhouse on the Gulf Coast, but she sure was a cloud-maker. We will see strong overcast today and tomorrow associated with dear Ida and the combined effects of an onshore (from the east) wind flow. Look for highs in the 60s today. Confidence: Medium
Tonight: The clouds will be with us through tonight with a 50/50 chance of showers. Temperatures should not fall as much due to the cloud cover. Look for mid-to-upper 40s. Confidence: Medium
Keep reading for the forecast through the weekend...
Tomorrow (Veterans Day): Cooler weather and cloud cover will prevail with highs mainly in the lower 50s around the area. We could see more showers as well (50% chance), along with an increasing breeze. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: Mostly cloudy yet again with a chance of some showers (30% chance). Lows will be in the 40s. Cool breezes from the east will persist. Confidence: Medium
Thursday and Thursday night are looking mostly cloudy and breezy with a continuing chance of showers. Daytime highs aim for the 50s again with Thursday night lows back down into the 40s. Confidence: Medium
Friday could offer gradual recovery as the weekend approaches, with some sun and highs potentially in the low 60s. There is a risk, however, that onshore flow holds on enough to keep things on the cloudier and cooler side (highs in the 50s) with some lingering showers. Confidence: Medium
There are some hints that onshore flow could persist long enough to keep some clouds and still a shower chance around on Saturday with highs in the 60s. Sunday looks sunnier with upper 60s to near 70 within reach. Lows should be mostly in the 40s. Confidence: Medium
