Temperatures will continue to stay warm, with highs approaching 90 on Thursday before the rain caps the heat of the temperatures. In the 70s it gets damp with dew points. This will lead to uncomfortably low temperatures even in the mid-1970s.
The main threat will be the risk of heavy rainfall, with most areas receiving less than half an inch a day. However … locally 2 inches plus is possible in an isolated area due to the high moisture content and where repeated showers and storms exercise over the same area.
Temperatures will be a bit cooler this weekend due to the increased chance of rain, with highs in the 80s. Overnight lows range from the upper 60s to the 70s inland with the mid to upper 70s near the coast.
A cold front is expected to shift into the lower Mississippi Valley, but unfortunately it is unlikely to bring any greater relief as it is likely to stall before reaching the coast. Regardless of the exact point where it comes to a halt, we will be stuck at the bottom of the trough, so expect increased coverage and multiple rounds of showers and thunderstorms by early next week. Storms will be highly efficient rain producers and can be trained. Much of the area is still saturated with all of the rain we’ve had, so flash floods will be a big problem.
