Weather

StormTracker Morning Forecast…

Today: The unsettled weather pattern continues into this week with likely rain chances. Scattered to numerous showers and storms. A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through this evening. Any heavy rain that falls could lead to flooding issues for some, especially for areas that saw 3-6″ just on Monday. Rainfall rates of 2-3″ (or greater) per hour will be possible, which is not ideal since storms will be slow-movers. Rain chance is around 60-70%. Rain coverage should be a bit lower than Monday. Highs will be in the mid and upper 80s. Some spots could be cooler or warmer all depending on which areas get rain.

Rainfall rates of 2-3″ (or greater) per hour will be possible

Tonight: Mostly cloudy with some passing showers and storms. Rain chance is around 30%. Low near 74°F.

Wednesday: Rain chances will begin to lower a bit as ridging builds in from our west. Best chance for wet weather will be along and north of I-10/I-12. Rain chance currently is around 40-50%. High near 90°F. Low near 74°F.

Thursday: A few showers around, but most will stay dry and hot with highs in the lower 90s. Rain chance is around 20%.

Friday: Getting hot and mostly dry conditions continue. Rain chance is around 20%. High near 93°F.

Weekend: Hot and a few spotty storms at times. Highs near 95°F with heat indices around 105°F – 110°F +. Rain chance is around 30%.

Monday: Rain chance is around 30% with highs in the low and mid 90s.

Tracking the Tropics: An area of low pressure over Georgia will eventually move offshore and into the Atlantic. Once it moves into the Atlantic, it will have a better shot for formation. No threat to Louisiana.
