Cooler Days and Nights Coming
Tracking 3 Tropical Systems in the Atlantic/Gulf
Wednesday’s daytime temperatures will stay hotter than normal, but some relief in on the way!
A cold front pushes through the area tomorrow and could pop off an isolated shower or two, but most of the area stays dry. The big impact will be the cooler temperatures that filter in behind the front. Thursday through Saturday will see near seasonal daytime highs, but nightly lows will be cooler than normal. In fact, Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings will be fantastic with temperatures dipping down into the upper 50s to low 60s with comfy humidity. Temperatures rebound Sunday and return to being several degrees above the norm next week as we usher in Fall.
We’re keeping an eye on 3 tropical systems as the Atlantic hurricane season has become a bit more active today:
1. Hurricane Humberto is now a major Cat 3 as he continues to move out to sea away from the east coast.
2. Tropical Depression Imelda barely formed into a tropical storm before making landfall near Freeport, Texas earlier today. She’s bringing heavy rainfall that could lead to life-threatening flooding to Texas and Louisiana over the next few days.
3. Tropical Depression Ten (soon to be Jerry) is way out in the Atlantic about 1100 miles east of the Leeward Islands. He’s expected to strengthen into a hurricane by Friday. Latest path has him passing north of Puerto Rico and Hispaniola Saturday into Sunday then possibly turning north before making it to the Bahamas. This trek could definitely change, so we’ll need to keep a cautious eye on “Jerry”.
