The official National Hurricane Center track keeps the center of circulation to our west, but we are expecting impacts beginning late Friday. Fred will be more of a rainmaker for us then a wind threat, however gusty squalls will be possible.

High-end rain chances will continue through the weekend with the worst weather expected Saturday through much of Sunday.

By Monday, our weather will start to slowly improve as Fred moves into the northern Gulf of Mexico.
