A nice weekend before stormy changes

Good Saturday, everyone. The final weekend of August is upon us, and the weather is looking pretty darn good. Of course, that’s been the trend now for the past week or so. As we head into next week, things are starting to take on a stormy look.

Can some of the stormy weather come from Hurricane Harvey? That’s a possibility by the end of the week. I’ll get into that.

Highs Saturday are in the mid and upper 70s in many areas, with mostly sunny skies.

Highs will climb to about 80 Sunday as clouds increase. Those clouds could spit out an isolated shower or thunderstorm by evening. That’s in response to an upper-level low diving in early next week:

Some locally heavy rain is possible with this system.

Hurricane Harvey continues to spin across Texas and will be nearly stationary for the next several days. That could bring historic flooding to these areas.  Here’s the latest on the storm:

The models are all over the place on what happens with Harvey, but I do think we will get, at least, some rain from this system late next week. There are a lot of variables at play, including exactly how long Harvey decides to loop around Texas and Louisiana.

The Canadian Model brings Harvey right on top of us by Friday, with a trough developing over the Labor Day weekend…

Have a great day and take care.
