SYNOPSIS – The morning is starting off with some light rain across the region, but this is not the rain associated with the threat for strong to severe storms. An additional line of thunderstorms is expected to march through the region between 2 PM and 8 PM, and it’s those thunderstorms that include the chance for severe weather. The primary threats are isolated tornadoes, gusty winds, and isolated pockets of damaging winds. The good news in all of this is another very beneficial 0.50″ to 1.50″ of rain is expected to fall before we start drying out later tonight. Thanksgiving looks dry and cool, and we’ll turn a little warmer for Iron Bowl weekend.

TODAY – Scattered thunderstorms, some strong to severe. High near 75°. Winds SE, turning SW at 15-20 mph. 70%

TONIGHT – Mostly cloudy with a few lingering showers. Low near 54°. Winds NW at 10 mph. 30%

TOMORROW – Partly sunny. High near 61°. Winds NW at 10-15 mph.


THU: Partly sunny. Low: 43° High: 61°

FRI: Mostly cloudy with a slight chance of rain. Low: 47° High: 63° 20%

SAT: Partly cloudy. Low: 45° High: 65°

SUN: Partly sunny. Low: 44° High: 66°

MON: Mostly cloudy with a slight chance of rain. Low: 50° High: 67° 20%

COASTAL FORECAST TUESDAY – *Small Craft Advisory until 2 PM CST.* Choppy on Coastal Lakes and Bays. Winds S at 20 kts, decreasing to 15-20 kts by the afternoon. Seas offshore 4-6 feet.

TROPICAL UPDATE – A couple of areas in the central Caribbean and way out in the north-central Atlantic are being watched for low chances of developing into a tropical system over the next several days. The rest of the Atlantic basin is quiet.
