Harvey Finally Begins it’s Trek North
HARVEY: Tropical Storm Harvey has now moved back into the Gulf and will slowly begin to move north. As the center moves back to the northeast, over parts of Louisiana and Arkansas, we will being to see it’s impacts. Beginning tomorrow, we will likely see some very heavy downpours that may cause some minimal flash flooding. In addition, there could be a brief, weak spin-up tornado either Wednesday or Thursday in addition to the torrential downpours. With this minor threat, make sure you stay weather aware for the remainder of the week, but there is no reason to change your daily routine.
TONIGHT: The outer bands from Harvey’s remnants will begin to move into our area, which will bring the chance for some scattered showers or storms. Temperatures will drop into the low 70s.
WED/THU/FRI: Rain chances will increase as we begin to see heavier rain from Harvey. A brief spin-up tornado cannot be ruled out. Highs will be in the low 80s once you factor in the rain and cloud cover.
LABOR DAY WEEKEND: The forecast for this weekend is still a bit unclear. There are some models that indicate some of Harvey’s moisture will linger around, bringing more showers and storms, but others suggest that we will stay mostly dry. We are keeping some low end rain chances in the forecast through the weekend, but it could go either way. Once we get closer to the weekend, we will have a better idea of whether or not we stay dry for the weekend. Monday looks pretty nice with more sunshine and lower humidity. Rain chances increase again for Tuesday, as another frontal system begins to move in. Temperatures for the weekend will remain in the mid to upper 80s.
