Harvey Lingers Through Thursday, Nice Weekend Coming
TONIGHT: Lingering showers are likely. The tornado threat should wane with time but not completely go away since we’ll remain on the eastern side of Harvey’s circulation center. Lows will be in the 70s with breezy winds continuing from the ESE.
THURSDAY: Showers and storms continue with the remnants of Harvey in the area. We’ll still be watching out for the chance of a few isolated tornadoes. Any shower may produce torrential rainfall but the heaviest rain in general will be found west of the Harvey’s circulation. That will generally be across our western and northwestern counties where 1” to 5” or more may fall.
FRIDAY: We’ll start off the day with some cloud cover and perhaps a few showers but drier air should allow for partly cloudy skies as the day goes on. Look for highs in the low 80s. Quiet conditions are likely for high school football with kickoff temperatures in the 70s.
LABOR DAY WEEKEND: Our long holiday weekend is looking good with partly cloudy skies in the forecast Saturday through Monday. Highs will be in the 80s.
NEXT WEEK: Rain chances return by Tuesday and Wednesday. A few recent model runs suggest the development of a tropical system in the Gulf of Mexico. This is very uncertain so we’ll just have to wait and see how things evolve over time.
