Tuesday Night: Typical summertime pattern in SE Louisiana; Monitoring the tropics carefully

Weather

Tonight: Areas of patchy fog overnight. Morning temperatures will be in the mid 70s.

Wednesday: Sun and clouds with highs in the low and mid 90s. Afternoon spotty storms are expected. Rain chance is around 30-40%. Feels-like temperatures will be in the lower 100s.

Thursday: Partly sunny, hot, and humid. Highs will be in the lower 90s, but it will feel like the 100s. Rain chance is around 40%.

Friday & Weekend: Scattered showers and storms are expected each day. Rain chance is around 50% Friday and around 60% over the weekend. It will not be a total washout, but rain coverage will be a bit higher than previous days. High temperatures will be in the lower 90s, but it will feel much hotter.

Next Week: Scattered rain chances into early next week. Highs will be in the lower 90s.

Tracking the Tropics: Potential Tropical Cyclone Six will likely become Tropical Storm Fred today or tonight. It is expected to track toward Hispaniola, the southern Bahamas, and northern Cuba. It will likely encounter higher wind shear and drier air, as well as interact with land, which would keep it from intensifying much. Current forecast brings it into the southeastern Gulf of Mexico by the weekend. Still plenty of time to watch this system, but remember, we are heading into the peak season, which means this likely won’t be the only storm we will have to watch carefully. We may even have to watch a disturbance following behind PTC Six, as well.
