Weather

Dry air took over much of the Gulf, so rain chances have gone down for the weekend. Warm 80s are around tonight. As we head into Saturday and Sunday, winds are off the Gulf, but the Gulf is fairly dry. So while we do have scattered showers in the forecast, just look for a 20-30% chance. Back to the warm, humid summer next week. Check Frank's full forecast here.
