Tonight: Mostly clear conditions with lows in the low 70s. Dewpoints will be in the upper 60s and low 70s to contribute to the muggy humidity conditions. An isolated shower may pass through the area in the late evening
Tomorrow: Partly cloudy as temperatures will be in the low 90s for the high. The early morning will start out humid before the front moves through in the early afternoon. Behind the front, drier air will push in from the north in the latter half of the day. Temperatures will drop below 60 degrees in the late evening with lows in the low-to-mid 60s overnight.
Tuesday: High temperatures will be lower than previous days, near 85 degrees. The dry, stable air behind the cold front will suppress any chance of precipitation for the rest of the workweek and high temperatures will be cooler into the low-to-mid 80s. Overnight lows on Tuesday will be in the low 60s.
Tracking the Tropics: Tropical Storm Ian is currently located southeast of Western Cuba in the Caribbean with maximum sustained winds of 45 mph. It is forecasted to move west before turning north impacting Western Cuba. Rapid strengthening is expected by Tuesday. Once it passes Cuba by late Tuesday, there is some uncertainty in exact track that the center of the storm will take. Western-Central Florida to the Florida Big Bend area is currently the area of greatest concern; however, the whole state of Florida is in play and should pay close attention to the forecast. There is reason to believe the storm will weaken before landfall, but impacts will mostly remain unchanged. If weakening occurs, the winds would decrease, but they expand in radius from the storms center. There is no threat to the state of Louisiana at this time. We will continue to watch this system for any changes in the back half of the forecast.
