Monday Night: Heat Advisory and tropical showers tomorrow; Drier days to come

Weather

Tonight: We will have to watch for some feeder bands from Ida as it lifts to the northeast toward Tennessee and into the Mid-Atlantic states. Rain is most likely south of I-10/I-12 corridor. Same areas affected with flooding rains may see heavy rain again. Morning temperatures will be in the lower 70s.

Tuesday & Wednesday: Tropical showers will continue to be possible. We will have to watch for heavy rain. It will be hot, humid, and a bit breezy at times. The National Weather Service issued a Heat Advisory for Tuesday, but the advisory criteria was lowered due to power outages and the risk for heat-related illnesses. Highs will be near 90, but it will like 100-103.

Thursday – Sunday: We will start to dry out and even drier air may move into the region – this would mean lower heat indices during the afternoon, drier days, and cooler mornings.

Tracking the Tropics: Ida is now a tropical depression and will eventually brings impacts to the Mid-Atlantic and East Coast.

Tropical Storm Kate developed in the open Atlantic. This will not impact our area.

There are two other waves that will be monitored in the coming days. One has a high chance of becoming Larry in the coming days. The other has a low chance of development.
