Good Thursday, everybody. We are just about to close the books on an incredibly wet August, and we are doing so with more rounds of showers and storms going up. These boomers will likely hang around, in scattered fashion, through the big Labor Day Weekend.
Today finds a cold front working slowly across the state. Scattered showers and storms are along and ahead of this front, bringing the best chance for rain to the south and east. Watch for some tropical downpours that can cause quick rises on creeks and streams:
As I mentioned, a scattering of showers and storms take us through your unofficial end of summer that is your Labor Day Weekend. This action will be more prominent during the afternoon and evening hours…
There is no reason to cancel any outdoor activities, but have a backup plan just to be on the safe side. Temps over the weekend are well into the 80s for highs, with the high humidity making it feel toastier than that.
Temps next week may wind up similar to what we’ve had this week. It’s going to be a super tropical feel during this time, as we watch the Gulf of Mexico to see if a tropical system can develop. The GFS is catching on to something and taking it toward Texas…
That’s an interesting look and track, keeping us in the heat and humidity with scattered storms around.
Enjoy your Thursday and take care.
