Heavy rain is finally in the forecast today as deep tropical moisture streams north out of the Gulf of Mexico ahead of an approaching front. Look for showers and thunderstorms region wide, heaviest and most prolonged in the south. Highs will be kept down by cloud cover but very high few points in the upper 60’s to low 70’s will make it feel sticky. Actual high temps will range through the 70’s from north to south. Showers and thunderstorms will slide offshore this evening as the front drifts east. A total of .25-1.5″ of rain is expected with highest amounts in the south and lowest amounts in the north. While this is nowhere near enough to bust our drought, anything helps.
