LATEST FORECAST

Storm Team 15 Forecast

 

The summer-like pattern will continue today with highs reaching the upper 80s and plenty of sunshine. A few passing clouds will form in the afternoon. Tonight will see more muggy air sticking around. Some patchy fog is possible tomorrow morning, though a lot less than previous mornings. Lows will fall to near 70 degrees.

Today: Partly cloudy. Hot. High: 87°

Tonight: Star-filled skies. Muggy. Low: 69°

Thursday: Warm and humid. A few afternoon storms are possible. High: 86°

A weak cold front approaches the area Thursday, pulling moisture northward from a broad area of low pressure by the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. This will allow a few showers and thunderstorms to form later in the day. With the increased cloud cover, temperatures should be slightly cooler. Friday will see the best rain chances as spotty storms develop after lunchtime. Drier air filters in behind the front for the weekend, though there won't be much of a drop in temperatures. Next week, a cold front will reach close to Acadiana, though high pressure will push back on it. The front is not expected to pass through until midweek at the earliest, but rain chances will be going up and that should help daytime highs come down to the upper 70s by Tuesday.

Epsilon has strengthened rapidly overnight and reached hurricane status as it moved northward. It will likely continue to strengthen for a while longer as it passes east of Bermuda. Epsilon is no threat to any land areas and will head out into open waters. Beyond this, no tropical development is expected within the next 5 days.
