Tonight: Most storms should fade by sunset, but some showers may linger late in the evening, as well. Overnight temperatures in the low and mid 70s. Patchy fog by morning.
Friday: Numerous showers and storms are expected once again, but it will not be an all-day washout. Deep tropical moisture, a disturbance in the Gulf, and a front to our north will lead to bouts of heavy rain and we will have to watch for flash flooding…yet again. A quick 1 to 3 inches (with locally higher amounts) will be a good possibility for a few spots. Low-lying areas, flood-prone areas, streams, bayous, creeks, ditches, roads will be the most vulnerable. Heaviest rain will develop during the midday and early afternoon hours.
Weekend: Rain chances should begin to drop a bit as drier air slowly spills to the south, but we likely won’t be completely dry, especially south of I-10/I-12. Scattered storms are still expected on Saturday and spotty storms on Sunday. Otherwise, partly cloudy skies with highs in the lower 90s.
Next Week: Lower rain chances on Monday, but scattered rain expected Tuesday through next Friday. Some changes to the rain chances may be in store for the extended forecast. Lower rain chances will mean higher temperatures.
Tracking the Tropics: No development is expected during the next five days, per the National Hurricane Center. High wind shear and Saharan dust in the Atlantic has led to hostile atmospheric conditions. Keep in mind, most hurricanes develop during the months of August, September, and October, on average.
