Weather

StormTracker Morning Forecast…

Tracking the Tropics: Cristobal (Krees-TOH-Bahl) continues to weaken and will continue to push inland across Louisiana and Mississippi, eventually moving into Arkansas. Bands of showers and thunderstorms will continue to feed into the circulation of Cristobal on Monday. An isolated flood threat will continue, particularly in areas that already received heavy rainfall. It will be breezy as Cristobal pushes to the northwest.

Today: Bands of showers will continue to feed into the system, which may lead to bouts of heavy rain. There will continue to be an isolated flood threat, more so for areas that received the heavy rainfall on Sunday. An additional 1-3″ will be possible with locally higher amounts for areas caught under a rain band. There is a low-end threat for a spin-up tornado or two for areas along and east of I-55. Rain chance is around 60-70% with breezy conditions. High near 85.

Tonight: Lingering showers will continue as Cristobal continues to move inland to our northwest and north. Rain chance is around 40%. Low near 76.

Tuesday: Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms. Otherwise, it will be hot and humid with a high temperature around 91. Rain chance is around 30-40%. Overnight temperature near 76.

Wednesday: A “cool” front will pass through the area, increasing our rain chances to around 40-50%, mainly early Wednesday morning. High near 89. Overnight temperature near 67.

Thursday-Sunday: Mostly sunny skies and dry conditions. Highs will be in the 80s and 90s and overnight lows will be in the 60s.
