Wednesday Night: More storms on Thursday; Possible tropical system in the southern Gulf this weekend

Weather

Tonight: Mostly cloudy, warm, and humid. A couple of showers will be possible, but most stay dry. Morning temperatures in the low and mid 70s.

Thursday: Scattered to numerous showers and storms are expected. Highs will be in the upper 80s. Storms may produce downpours, gusty wind, and lightning.

Friday: Scattered showers and storms with highs near 90.

Saturday & Sunday: Scattered to numerous showers and storms are expected with highs near 90. Rain chance is around 50-60%.

Next Week: We are watching the tropics very carefully. Our forecast next week is solely dependent on what happens with Invest 99L. Adding higher rain chances Monday – Wednesday for now.

Tracking the Tropics: There are three areas highlighted by the NHC. The wave in the Caribbean could become a tropical system in the coming days and is expected to enter the southern Gulf this weekend. Too soon to tell where it ultimately ends up since a center has not developed yet. Some models point it toward Louisiana and Texas, which means we must keep watch on this very carefully. Now is the time to make sure your hurricane kit is ready to go for you, your family, and your pets. . Next names on the list are Ida and Julian.
