  • As you get going this morning, we’ll have the latest on what was Tropical Storm Harvey. Is it about to get going again? What’s left of the storm is moving north through the Gulf of Mexico and may pick up some more steam as it gets closer to the coast. Diane Deaton will have the latest on the track and what we might expect. Click here for more

  • It’s good to have another quiet and relatively dry forecast for your midweek out-the-door; temperatures starting off in the “low” to mid 70°s! But later today, just like yesterday, get ready for areas rain - some possibly locally heavy - and a few storms, your high this afternoon in the lower 90s. Overnight, scattered showers may linger - a low of 74; tomorrow, continuing wet weather, especially during the afternoon hours, 50% - 60% coverage, a high of 90°.
