We're still dry and sunny. We're even a little cooler today. We should all stay out of the 80s this afternoon, reaching temperatures only in the upper 70s. The nighttime hours will be clear and a bit cooler, with most of us in the upper 40s. There are a few clouds and showers in east Texas this morning, but as they make their way toward us, they should dry up and evaporate because of the lack of humidity here. This weekend is fantastic, whether you're celebrating homecoming, or just going camping, just do it. The weather will be wonderful. Temperatures are a little below average now, but we should be about average for the weekend.

We're looking at dry conditions potentially into November, which will continue our longest dry spell of the year. Thankfully, we still have a little rain surplus in Baton Rouge.

The Tropics

Tropical Depression Nine has become more of a remnant low as it moves over the Yucatan. It's not even being officially recognized by the National Hurricane Center anymore. The Caribbean is a little stormy at the moment, but we aren't worried about any tropical development within the next few days.
