Wednesday Night: Gulf disturbance will bring multiple rounds of heavy rain for the weekend.

Weather

Localized flash flooding could be an issue at times.

Tonight – Expect a few early showers. Otherwise, the rest of the night will quiet. Lows near 76.

Tomorrow – Scattered thunderstorms with some heavy downpours are possible. Skies will be mostly cloudy. Highs near 89.

Extended – The threat for development continues to climb on a tropical wave [Invest 91L] in the central Gulf.  Regardless of tropical formation, the disturbance will bring multiple rounds of heavy rain for the weekend. Localized flash flooding could be an issue at times. Impacts will mainly be a coastal concern – higher than normal tides and coastal flooding. We close the month of July with a pretty seasonal pattern. Daytime heating thunderstorms will be a daily occurrence. Temperatures will sit near-normal for most of the week.

Tropical Storm Gonzalo will likely strengthen overnight into a hurricane in the central Atlantic. Right now, forecast models are showing some weakening before the storm reaches the Caribbean. If fact, the storm may dissipate prior to even reaching the Lesser Antilles. Right now, it’s not an immediate threat to Louisiana; however, it’s worth watching over the weekend and early next week.
