October 5, 2013 | Shelby LatinoBig changes to the weather pattern are heading our way, and WCBI's First Alert Weather Team has their eye on two weather systems. Tropical Storm Karen has chosen a more westerly track and slowed considerably. The storm will continue to weaken as it makes landfall in SE Louisiana early tomorrow morning. The cold front we've been talking about will be our main rain maker, but it will get a little help from Karen's tropical moisture. As the front passes, it will sweep Karen away to our east and leave us with gorgeous fall-like conditions for the work week. Tonight: Showers and isolated storms will begin in the late evening and continue through the early morning hours. With all of the moisture in the air, overnight lows are expected to only sink to the upper 60s.
October 4, 2013 | Heather SophiaWe currently tracking two systems– a cold front and Tropical Storm Karen in the Gulf. Latest forecast models suggest that Karen will take a hard turn to the right as it nears shore making our weekend not as wet. However, with the cold front scheduled late Saturday night into Sunday morning, we'll still have the potential of seeing 1" of rain in some locations.
October 3, 2013 | Shelby LatinoWe will finish out this work week with above average temperatures and humidity. A few spotty showers are possible tomorrow, but the weather looks to be dry and comfortable for Friday Night Football & Bulldog Bash. This weekend is a different story. We currently tracking two systems-- a strong cold front and Tropical Storm Karen in the Gulf. If they interact, areas of heavy rain will be possible in our area late Saturday and Sunday. Where the tropical system makes landfall will be crucial-- further west means extra rain for us, further east could keep us dry through Saturday evening.
