Yes it's still summer
Today and Tonight: Look for showers and storms to back off somewhat on Tuesday Afternoon. Activity will be more isolated in nature during the second half of the day. With partly sunny skies early, high temperatures will top out near 90 degrees. The nighttime hours will be quieter and muggy with lows in the low 70s.
Up Next: Wednesday through Friday will offer very seasonable weather. The forecast calls for partly sunny skies with isolated afternoon showers and thunderstorms. High temperatures will be in the low 90s with low temperatures in the low 70s. If you’re looking for a day with a good chance of staying dry—Thursday is the bet. Stay tuned as we update the forecast into the weekend, depending on the movement of a front, the weather could be more of the same or fairly active!
The Tropics: UPDATE
Forecast Discussion: With a stationary front dissipated and displaced east of the local area and an upper level trough along the Southwestern Louisiana Coast opening up, shower and thunderstorm coverage should back off on Tuesday. An Eastern United States high pressure system will remain in place Wednesday through Friday allowing weak southerly flow to stay in place along the Gulf Coast. With high temperatures reaching for the low 90s, marine breezes will result in diurnally driven showers and thunderstorms. Coverage will be in the isolated category. At this time, confidence is low as to how the weekend forecast will shape up. In general, the upper pattern through the weekend looks fairly zonal and therefore shower and storm coverage will be determined by the timing and placement of fronts moving across the country. Those that get closer to the region will result in increased activity, whereas a further northern stoppage will lead to drier days. None are expected to fully clear the area to user in drier air.
