Wednesday Night: Passing showers thanks to Nicholas; Flash Flood Watch extended until Friday

Weather

Tracking Nicholas: Nicholas is a Tropical Depression as of 10 PM. It is just stalled over the state of Louisiana. It will still trigger off-and-on showers tonight and Thursday until it dissipates, but even after that, we will still have rain around.  

Tonight: Passing showers are possible and they could be on the heavy side. Otherwise, mostly cloudy with a low near 71.  
 
Thursday: Rain coverage will be lower, but we are still expecting scattered to numerous showers at times. The Flash Flood Watch has been extended into Friday evening thanks to the threat for some more rain, saturated soils, current standing water, and debris potentially clogging drainage systems. Partly sunny to mostly cloudy otherwise with highs in the mid 80s. 

Friday – Sunday: Scattered to numerous showers and storms are expected Friday and into the weekend thanks to remaining tropical moisture in place and a trough of low pressure. Isolated flash flooding may be possible. Unfortunately, there may be some rain around for tailgating and during the early portions of the football games. This weekend shouldn’t be a washout, but there will be a good coverage of rain mainly during the afternoon and evenings. Highs will be in the low and mid 80s. 

Next Week: Daily scattered rain with highs in the 80s.

Tropics: There are three other areas of interest in the Atlantic Basin. Plenty of time to watch them.
