Good morning everyone! Good morning everyone! It's going to be mostly sunny this morning after a stormy night last night. We're starting off near 70 but will warm up to the upper 80s this afternoon. Be SURE to grab your raincoat  because there will be more scattered thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. Can't rule out one or two having gusty winds.

Saturday we will have another 50 percent chance for rain with highs in the mid 80s with extra cloud cover in the area. Thankfully it doesn't look as wet as we were originally thinking, but it will still be quite soggy for some places. 

Sunday all eyes look into the Gulf of Mexico as a potential tropical system moves this direction. right now it is classified as Invest 90L by the National Hurricane Center. By Sunday it would be a Tropical Depression or Tropical Storm. If it is a Tropical Storm, it will be named Alberto. 

By Monday, The system is forecast to move inland somewhere between Lafayette, Louisiana and Tallahassee, Florida. As we continue to gather more data, we will be able to nail down exactly where landfall will occur, but for now that is the best we can do. Regardless of the placement, the area will likely receive between 2" and 5" of rain - at a minimum. And it could be considerably more. 

-First Alert Meteorologist Patrick Bigbie
