Tonight: We will be mostly dry overnight, but a stray shower cannot be ruled out. Otherwise, partly cloudy with low temperatures in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Patchy fog is possible by morning. The full “Harvest Moon” will be visible tonight, but some clouds could limit viewing.
Saturday: The upper-level low that brought us wet weather on Friday will eventually lift to the north and begin to exit the region. Until then, scattered showers and storms will be possible by late morning, peaking during the afternoon, and chances will last through early evening. Tailgaters will want to pack the rain gear and plan to dodge a couple of showers or storms. Make sure you have a safe place to take shelter in case lightning is in the area. The plus side to rain chances on Saturday, it won’t rain all day and rain will be hit and miss. Otherwise, sun and clouds with highs in the mid and upper 80s.
Sunday: Only spotty showers are expected on Sunday ahead of a weak cold front. Highs will be in the upper 80s before rain develops. Most areas will stay on the dry side. Overnight temperatures will be in the lower 70s.
Next Week: A front is expected to pass by Monday morning. This won’t bring us a cooldown, but it would bring a slight drop in humidity. You’ll notice the drop in humidity on Tuesday and Wednesday. Some model guidance shows the front stalling near the coast, which would mean slight rain chances would remain in the forecast for some and there would be a temperature and dew point gradient from north to south. For now, we will keep little to no rain chances for the middle half of next week and low temperatures in the mid and upper 60s.
Tracking the Tropics: Hurricane Earl is going to stay in the open Atlantic. It is no longer expected to become a major hurricane. There are three other areas being monitored by the National Hurricane Center. No threats to Louisiana.
