A stalled cold front to our north will help to enhance the amount of rain we get Sunday. With winds coming off the Gulf of Mexico, we could see some showers in the morning and through the afternoon. The rain chance is 70%.
The earlier rain means it won’t be quite as hot. Highs stay in the low 90s, and the rain tapers off during the early evening hours.
