Scattered Showers and Isolated Thunderstorms for the Weekend
Daily scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms remain in the forecast through next week as tropical moisture is pumped into the region. It will also stay very warm and muggy with highs in the mid to upper 80s. Nights will be quite humid with lows in the upper 60s to low 70s.
Tropical Storm Cristobal is making his way back into the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico and will be moving northward toward the Gulf Coast where he’s expected to make landfall Sunday night still as a tropical storm. Latest models are mostly in agreement that Cristobal will come onshore somewhere along the Louisiana coast.
A frontal boundary sinking from the north will steer Cristobal to the west and away from our area, but ample moisture will continue to stream into the region. As the storm moves inland, he will be absorbed by another front coming in the from the northwest that will move the remnants of Cristobal toward the east and could possibly dump a good bit of rain on our area Tuesday and Wednesday.
