A cold front will move through the region today, bringing a line of scattered showers and thunderstorms. Some of these storms could become strong to severe this afternoon with damaging winds and isolated tornadoes/waterspouts as the main risks. Severe weather threat will diminish from west to east through early this evening.
Clouds are already increasing in advance of a developing low and cold front that will bring our area another shot at rain tonight and Wednesday. For most, this will just be another bit of rain. Closer to the coast, there will be a higher chance for storms, and a limited threat for both heavy rain and severe weather. Gusty winds on the Gulf will require small craft advisories both before and after the front.
Zeta is making its way into the Gulf of Mexico now, where it is expected to restrengthen into a hurricane. Locally, the storm is mainly expected to increase winds and seas over the coastal Gulf waters. Here's the latest from @NHC_Atlantic pic.twitter.com/QdR0XlswtX
