StormTracker Morning Forecast…
Beta: Beta made landfall along the central Texas coast as a tropical storm. It will continue to meander before starting its journey toward the northeast and toward Louisiana. It will pass near the Upper Texas coast before moving over Southwest Louisiana as a tropical depression or as a remnant low. Our rain chances will be elevated until Beta exits the region and dissipates.
Today: Passing showers at times today thanks to Beta. Some rain could be on the moderate to heavy side. Rain chance is around 70%. Highs will be in the mid 70s. Breezy with wind out of the east between 10-15 mph with higher gusts. Flash Flood Watch in effect through Wednesday evening. Rain totals may be around 2-4″ on average with locally higher amounts. Coastal flooding will continue to be a concern, especially during high tide cycles. Moderate coastal flooding in the Coastal Flood Warning zones during high tide cycles and minor coastal flooding Wednesday and Thursday. Minor coastal flooding during high tide cycles for Coastal Flood Advisory zones through Thursday morning. Inundation could cause roads to be impassable. There is a Marginal Risk for spin-up tornadoes near the southwest and central coast of Louisiana.
Tonight: Passing showers and breezy conditions. Rain chance is around 50%. Low near 70.
Wednesday: We will watch for where Beta passes – This could mean an isolated tornado threat, depending on how far north the system passes. No formal outlook from SPC just yet, but that may change. Passing showers may lead to some isolated flash flooding. Flash Flood Watch continues. High near 82. Overnight temperature near 72.
Thursday: Partly sunny with scattered to numerous showers and storms. Rain chance is around 60%. Highs in the lower. Low near 70.
Friday & Weekend: Rain chances begin to taper as moisture exits the area. Highs in the mid 80s with overnight temperatures in the 60s & 70s.
Extended: A cool front is expected to move in Sunday and into Monday before a reinforcing front pushes in Tuesday and Wednesday. This could knock our temperatures down into the lower 80s with overnight lows in the lower 60s – woohoo! Fingers crossed!
Tracking the Tropics: Teddy is forecast to accelerate to the north toward Nova Scotia. Paulette has regenerated into a tropical system after a journey around the Atlantic. An area of disturbed weather has a low chance for formation through next five days.
