The front has moved through and will now settle over the northern Gulf of Mexico today. It's still close enough to continue keeping cloudiness over the coastal sections during the morning. Those clouds will gradually spread inland again over the course of the day. Temperatures will be mild with highs in the mid 70s. A few showers are possible by late this afternoon, more likely over the coastal areas.

Overnight, the front will start lifting northward. Upper level energy will pick up from the west, rains will then develop and start moving eastward. Unfortunately, the rains will continue to develop along the slow moving front, keeping the rains over the same area. Some rains will be heavy, especially toward Friday afternoon.

Rains will be on and off for Saturday with storms more likely early Sunday. Rainfall totals through Sunday could be in the 4-6 inch range, as a low pressure area will develop and roll up the Texas coast. That low will continue to intensify as it crosses Louisiana and moves northeast. A slight severe weather threat window will be in place early Sunday.

After Sunday, the front will push through, and blustery weather will move in. Expect sunny skies by Monday with temperatures in the 50s. It'll stay cold most of next week.
