NEW ORLEANS — WWL-TV Meteorologist Chris Franklin
Storms have been popping up this afternoon thanks to daytime heating and a weak front sitting across the area. Most of the storms have been along and south of the boundary. Some heavy downpours at times provide some cooling relief and luckily don’t sit for very long. Indications are for a drier day tomorrow, perhaps 20-30% and thus not much relief from the heat! A return to a more southerly flow off the Gulf will increase rain chances once again for the weekend to 40-50% which will likely last into Monday. Then the upper high begins building back in drying us out and heating us up through the rest of the week.
In the tropics: Again, models hinting at possible development in the Gulf from mid to late next week. Now, however, the tropical wave is forecast to approach southern Texas around Brownsville. Without anything to actually hone in on, models will likely continue to flip-flop on possible tropical development. just something to keep in the back of your mind as we inch closer to the peak of hurricane season.
