A Hot & Muggy Friday
Southerly flow will continue to help trigger scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms on Friday. Ample moisture from Cristobal (now a tropical depression, but will strengthen back to a tropical storm by Saturday) will really start pumping into the region as we get into the weekend.
At this point, Cristobal is expected to make landfall as a tropical storm sometime Sunday somewhere between the east Texas to east Louisiana coast. A frontal boundary from the north will help insulate us from the storm pushing him off to our west although we could get some rain from the eastern side of the system. As Cristobal moves inland Monday and pushes further north away from our area, moisture will continue to pour in behind and keep scattered showers in the forecast until mid-week. Another frontal boundary will ingest the remnants of the tropical storm Tuesday or Wednesday and move east, so we could see heavy rainfall in our area across both those days.
Highs and lows though early next week will range in the mid to upper 80s and upper 60s to low 70s respectively.
