Tuesday, September 10 Forecast Discussion

Stray showers and storms have developed this afternoon and are moving from east to west. These will collapse after sunset tonight with just a few of those higher clouds from these storms remaining into the overnight. Humidity will drop a bit as we work into our Wednesday and Thursday which should keep us dry and mostly cloud free.

Rain returns on Friday afternoon with a weak cold front working through the area. This will touch off showers and storms, but no severe weather is expected. We will see the front exit for most of us overnight with only those around Highway 84 still south of the front by sunrise Saturday. This will make for a comfortable Saturday with low humidity and readings in the upper 80s for highs.

We return to the low 90s for next week, but there is one factor that may change that. A cluster of storms in the western Caribbean is forecast to cross the Yucatan Peninsula and move into the southern Gulf of Mexico in the Bay of Campeche. This is forecast to be in a favorable development to become a tropical system this weekend. As of now, it looks like it will head into Mexico or southern Texas, but some of its moisture may get pulled our direction and increase rain chances. We will continue to monitor this system carefully.

Elsewhere in the tropics, Tropical Storm Gabrielle has reformed near Bermuda and Tropical Storm Humberto is forecast to become our first hurricane later today. Today is the peak of hurricane season, and Mother Nature has three areas of interest with two named storms. Both Gabrielle and Humberto will have no impacts on the United States.
