Tuesday Night: Another Heat Advisory on Wednesday; Slight drop in humidity late this week

Weather

Tonight: We will have to watch for some heavy rain south of I-10/I-12 corridor. Same areas affected with flooding rains may see heavy rain again. Morning temperatures will be in the low and mid 70s.

Wednesday: Showers will continue to be possible – mainly south of I-10/I-12. We will have to watch for heavy rain. It will be hot, humid, and a bit breezy at times. The National Weather Service issued a Heat Advisory for Tuesday, but the advisory criteria was lowered due to power outages and the risk for heat-related illnesses. Highs will be near 90°F, but it will like 100°F-106°F.

Thursday: More rain at times before some slightly drier air moves in from the north. Rain chance is around 30%. Highs will be near 90°F.

Friday– Sunday: We will start to dry out and even drier air may move into the region – this would mean lower heat indices during the afternoon, drier days, and cooler mornings. Morning temperatures will be in the upper 60s to around 70°F. Hey – we’ll take it!

Next Week: Spotty showers to start the week. Highs will be in the lower 90s.

Tracking the Tropics: Ida is now a tropical depression and will eventually brings impacts to the Mid-Atlantic and East Coast.

Tropical Depression Kate is in the open Atlantic. No threat to us.

Tropical Depression Twelve developed off the coast of Africa. It will become Larry soon. Plenty of time to watch.

There’s also a wave in the Caribbean that will need to be watch. Chances are low for now.
