A wetter than average pattern looks to continue into the weekend. There will be many dry hours, most likely during the morning, while the middle of the day through early evening will see storms around. The atmosphere is loaded with deep tropical moisture, and that means a few downpours are possible and could cause localized flooding problems.
There's not a lot of change early next week. However, by the middle of the week, drier air may try to build into the Gulf Coast lowering rain chances and raising temperatures.
There are a couple of disturbances in the Atlantic with a low to medium chance for development, but neither is expected to affect the Gulf Coast.
