Fred: Rain returns next week

A weak front has stalled across the area but it is still muggy as dew points remain in the 70s area wide. Some drier air has worked into the area limiting the chance for precipitation at least for today. After midnight, rain chances will begin to increase in the northwest counties because of an approaching weather disturbance out of the Southwest which continues producing showers and storms to the west. This system will be the main weather player Monday and may again produce flooding potential.

Showers and storms look likely as a warm front lifts north. Showers and storms remain likely on Tuesday as another weather disturbance spins across the region. Wednesday through Thursday we will begin to see some small changes in the upper level pattern over North America as the jet stream lifts north away from our area. A subtropical ridge will also build strength over the Gulf Coast but there will still be sufficient moisture in place to allow any disturbances which move over the area to produce a few showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the week ahead will range from 87 to 91 degrees with overnight lows of 73 to 75 degrees.
