First Alert Day Issued Tuesday for Heavy Rain

High pressure to our south will bring a warm Southwest wind today, along with Gulf of Mexico moisture. A cold front will move into the state by early Saturday morning. The front will set up shop over the Midlands for several days, becoming the focal point for periods of showers and rain.

A stronger system will ride the front by Tuesday, giving us widespread heavy rain (Tuesday is an Alert Day.) The chance of showers/rain will continue through much of the week.

As of today, it’s looking like a cold front will be here NEXT Thursday. The front should move through and not stall (It should move through) thunderstorms are possible ahead of the front on Thursday. This will be a changing weather event overtime, we’ll have updates as we move forward.
