Cold fronts in May usually struggle to push down into the Gulf, but tonight's models continue to show this one will make it. No it won't be back to sweaters & jackets, those days are long gone. But the drier air will allow the nights to cool into the 50s on the North Shore & 60s away from Lake P. South. The question tonight is how much rain will come with the front? Again, models are showing less than 1/2 inch. Certainly not like 17 years ago when a front stalled right on us drenching the South Shore with over a foot of rain flooding many homes & businesses. It was the greatest non-tropical weather disaster ($3.1 billion) in recorded history with 44,000+ homes flooded. No hints of that tonight.
