So far nice and quiet along the Gulf Coast, but as we head throughout the day we will see a bit of a change. Rain chances will be going up and there will be a decent shot of seeing showers and potentially a thunderstorm during the day. It’s going to be hot as well. Highs will reach the lower 90s, but the heat index will approach the triple digits if you don’t see rain.
Most shower activity comes to an end after sunset leading to a partly cloudy night with lows into the mid-70s
For the weekend expect similar conditions to Friday. Highs will reach the lower 90s and the heat index will remain high. There will also be a decent chance of showers during the day. In the morning the best chance of rain will be along the coast and throughout the day the best chance will shift further inland.
