Tuesday Morning: Hot and humid with spotty afternoon storms; Monitoring disturbance in southern Gulf

Weather

Tuesday: Sun, clouds, and spotty afternoon storms. Rain chance is around 30%. Highs will be in the mid 90s, but it will feel much hotter. A few storms may be strong to severe. Damaging wind will be the main concern. Overnight low near 73.

Wednesday: Sun and clouds with highs in the mid 90s. It will feel much hotter. Rain chance is lower – around 20%. Overnight low near 72.

Thursday: Hot and mostly dry. High near 93. Rain chance is around 10%.

Friday: Tropical moisture begins to move into the region. Rain chance is around 40-50% for now.

Weekend: We are watching Invest 92L. Model guidance brings it to the northern Gulf Coast this weekend as a tropical depression or tropical storm. Whether it develops or not, it will likely bring heavy rain and coastal flooding to the north central Gulf Coast. This system could be quite sloppy, which means heavy rain would be a threat well-east from the center, as well. Rain totals could exceed 10″ in some spots. Be sure to stay tuned. For now, we are forecasting around a 70% chance for rain both Saturday and Sunday. Local waterways will need to be monitored.
