A moist pattern with SW winds will increase our rain chances for both Saturday and Sunday.  Expect partly to mostly cloudy skies with numerous on and off showers moving in from the Gulf. This overall pattern will continue through Tuesday. Later next week SE flow develops and drier air may take over to lower rain potential. 

Although the coverage of rain may be high the next couple days severe potential will be low. However waterspouts may pop up along with heat indices near 100 degrees.

A tightening pressure gradient over the weekend will result in increasingly choppy and moderately elevated seas.
