More Stormy Times Friday-Saturday

An upper low is drifting westward across the northern Gulf and we’ll be on the wet side for the next 2-3 days.  It doesn’t mean it’ll rain 80-100% of the time, but rain coverage should be 80-100% of the area.   Coverage will start to decrease on Sunday with next week seeing even fewer mainly daytime heating storms.   When we have these upper disturbances around, it allows overnight showers to develop much like this morning.  Usually they quickly dissipate after daybreak but bubble right back up during daytime heating.   With deep tropical moisture in place, some of the heavier storms will produce 1-3” rain totals.   This could cause some brief street flooding.  Even had reports of some small hail today and that could happen again on Friday.   Waterspouts are often common in such a deep rich tropical environment.  As always, be aware of lightning.  “When thunder roars, go indoors”.
