Showers and thunderstorms likely today. Some storms could be strong to severe

Weather Authority Forecast for Thursday, August 3rd

WEATHER: Ready for a cool down tomorrow

Similar to Friday, there will likely be some areas of light rain around to start the day Saturday. Chance of precipitation 30 percent. Scattered showers will be possible, but they should hold off until after 4PM and coverage won't be widespread. The majority of the heavier showers and thunderstorms are way off to our south, due to an area of low pressure along the Louisiana coastline. Expect temperatures this weekend only in the 70s which is below our normal high of 83. In fact, we see a break from the humidity for the entire weekend. Instead, will be more scattered to isolated.

Monday: Increasing clouds, rain, heavy at times in the afternoon and evening/thunder, highs in the 70's.

Good Friday. We start the day with mostly cloudy skies and temps in the low 70s. Right now, it looks like rain chances will tick higher by the end of the week.

Tomorrow: Mostly cloudy. Wind: NE 5-10. The front will lift back to the north later on in the afternoon, so that stint of drier air for our northwest counties will be short-lived. Highs will top out near 80 degrees. There is more continuity for showers and thunderstorms threatening Thursday. Lows will be in the lower 70s. The second has a better chance to develop in the next five days. Just because there is potential for development, does not mean that something will develop.
