Quick break from rain before wet weekend

Posted: Updated:

It was a wet, blustery start to the day on Wednesday with a front moving quickly across the area, and at times was even able to produce a couple of isolated cases of severe weather. 

The front moved quickly and with the last of the showers pushing out around mid morning the skies the rest of the day will clear out until eventually we're looking at mostly sunny skies. 

It'll be a warm day with highs approaching record territory in the afternoon reaching close to around 80 degrees, and while the temperatures won't drop behind the front we will see the atmosphere dry out. 

As moisture drops this evening you can expect the lows to be cooler as well getting down into the 50s, overnight with fog moving in from the Gulf of Mexico through the night. 

Thursday's main weather problem will be the fog early in the morning with dense fog likely blanketing the area through the commute before clearing up as we go through the rest of the day. 

While the skies clear moisture will quickly bounce back as winds will pick up out of the south from the Gulf of Mexico will mean clouds start to pile up again on Thursday night, and last for several days. 

Showers take a break until Friday night when they move back into the area and will pick up on Saturday before coming to an end on Christmas Eve and letting temperatures plummet for Christmas Day.
