Eyes on Gulf, heavy rains target Texas
BATON ROUGE, La. -Our local rain chances may be on the decline over the weekend with a 50% chance of showers/storms Saturday, down to a 30% chance on Sunday. Highs will be in the low 90s both days under a mix of sun and clouds.
The focal point for this forecast cycle continues to be the disturbance in the Gulf, which is nothing more than a trough of low pressure in the Northern Gulf. The good news is that computer models show this feature moving west towards Texas.
As such, our local rain chances will go down once this low moves inland to Texas on Sunday.
At this time, there is only a low chance of any significant tropical development, and this low is not expected to get a name.
Our chances of rain will stay low going into the next work week, with only a 20% chance of storms Monday, and 30% chance Tuesday. Highs will stay warm in the low to mid 90s during this period.
We could see an increase in storms late next week. Stay tuned.
