Rain Returns, Watching the Tropics

It was a fantastic first weekend of October and Monday was great as well… but changes are coming.

I haven’t said this in awhile, but take an umbrella with you on Tuesday as we’ll see a chance of rain with moisture increasing up from the Gulf. Highs on Tuesday will stay a few degrees below average in the mid to upper 70s with Tuesday night lows down in the mid to upper 50s- also a few degrees below average.

We’ll see a warm up on Wednesday with highs in the low to mid 80s under partly cloudy skies, but not expecting any rain. On Thursday, we’ll add a better chance for showers and even some thunderstorms back into the forecast, but Friday and Saturday (maybe even Sunday) will be the days rain chances really increase for the area.

Why?

Hurricane Delta has formed in the central Caribbean. It is moving northwest and is projected to slide across the northern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula and out into the central Gulf before turning north. Latest track/timing has Delta making landfall somewhere between the east Texas coast and the western panhandle of Florida late this week, possible Friday.

We’ll need to keep an eye on Friday and especially Saturday as there could be strong to severe storms for our area due to the remnants of Delta, but it’s still a little too early to say for sure.

Keep smiling,
