The onshore wind pattern that has been with us for much of this week continues through Friday. This means we will have another round of showers and storms that move in from the Gulf of Mexico.
The storms will start early at the coast and will move northeast across the area.
Some of the storms will produce frequent lightning, very heavy rain, and gusty winds.
If you are trying to figure out when it’s best to go for a bike ride, the storms can pop up at any time so be sure to check with us for updates from Klystron 9 before you head out.

Expect showers and storms to develop over the Gulf and move onshore overnight and in the morning.
Friday will have southwest winds around 10 knots except higher near the thunderstorms.
Watch out for lightning and strong wind gusts. There is a possibility of waterspouts too.
