A potent weather system will move through the Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday, bringing the chance for a few scattered showers followed by cooler weather. Tuesday morning will get off to a mild and muggy start with temperatures in the upper 60s.

Skies today will be mostly cloudy with a few showers washing in from the Gulf. Due to the clouds and the rain, afternoon temperatures will be held into the upper 70s. Tonight, the clouds will linger around as the cold front continues its southward push. Overnight lows will also be a bit cooler as they settle into the middle 50s by morning.

The extended forecast calls for a stretch of unseasonably chilly weather. A series of cold fronts over the next several days will allow a Canadian air mass to drain down the state. This will keep temperatures chilled into the 40s for overnight lows. Despite sunshine, afternoon highs will stay rather cool in the 60s through the first half of the weekend . By Sunday, temperatures look to rebound into the lower 70s under mostly sunny skies.
