Weather

Pockets of heavy rain likely once again today...

StormTracker Morning Forecast…

Today: Some showers are possible early this morning. Friday will consist of warm and humid conditions. Showers and storms will develop once again mid to late morning and into the afternoon through the evening hours. Rain chance is around 70%.

The Weather Prediction Center has placed our area under a Slight Risk for excessive rainfall today because an additional 2 to 4 inches of rain (with locally higher amounts exceeding 4 inches) will be possible, which may lead to flash flooding once again. Areas that flooded yesterday will be especially vulnerable to flooding today if storms move slowly or even train over those spots.

Also, the Storm Prediction Center has placed our area under a Marginal Risk for severe weather. Damaging wind and some hail would be the main threats. A tornado or two cannot be ruled out.

Tonight: Evening and late night storms will persist before rain tapers late tonight. Mostly cloudy otherwise with lows in the upper 60s.

Saturday: We’ll see mostly cloudy skies and late morning/afternoon showers and storms. Showers and storms may persist into the evening hours. Some storms may produce gusty wind, frequent lightning, and very heavy rain. Some storms may begin to move in overnight Saturday and into Sunday. Rain chance is around 40%. High near 85.

Sunday: An approaching system will increase our rain chances. Current rain chances are around 60% to 70%. We will have to watch for strong to severe storms and isolated flash flooding. Damaging wind and very heavy rain would be the main threats. High near 83.

Monday: Scattered showers and storms with slightly lower rain chances around 40% as a cold front passes through the area. High near 82. Overnight temperatures in the lower 60s.

Tuesday: Drier weather thanks to the cold front. Highs will be in the lower 80s and overnight lows will be around 60.

Wednesday: Sun and clouds with highs in the mid 80s. Overnight tmeperatures will be in the low and mid 60s.

Thursday: Rain chances increase to around 20%. Highs in the mid and upper 80s.

Tropical Update: A subtropical or tropical depression or storm may develop later on Friday or Saturday. This will not impact the Gulf of Mexico and Louisiana. It is, however, a friendly reminder that the official start to hurricane season is right around the corner.
