Unsettled weather ahead

An amplifying upper level trough and the remnants of a subtropical low from the Gulf of Mexico will combine to bring breezy and rainy conditions to our region over the next two days. As the system approaches today, rain showers will develop. The passage of a warm front will keep temperatures nearly steady overnight tonight with rain showers and thunderstorms throughout the evening into tomorrow morning. The rain could be heavy at times, so urban flooding is a distinct possibility. A strong southerly low level jet ahead of the approaching cold front will cause gusty winds. There is disagreement between the models regarding how quickly the front will move offshore, but it looks like most of the rain will stop by mid-morning tomorrow. Later in the week, seasonably cool temperatures are expected.
