Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

We wanted the rain to stop. Well we got our wish. Unfortunately, as we say bye-bye to wet weather it's hello to sizzling heat! A heat advisory is in effect for Thursday with dangerous heat index of 105 to 110 degrees expected.  Thursday's high pressure that brings us higher heat should also bring fewer showers. Thunderstorms will be rather isolated. However, any storms that develop could become strong with possible damaging winds. Rain chances should increase for Friday as the high pressure moves away, leading to more showers and thunderstorms again over the weekend. A few of the storms each day could become strong, producing gusty winds, frequent lightning and heavy downpours that could result in localized street flooding.

Keep in mind that during a heat advisory, heat-related illness is possible. Drink plenty of fluids. Stay in an air-conditioned room. Stay out of the sun. And check up on relatives and neighbors. Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear lightweight and loose-fitting clothing when possible. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an emergency.

In the tropics, there are still no direct tropical threats to the Gulf. But, we continue to monitor tropical waves in the Atlantic that are headed west. Forecast models indicate that these tropical disturbances could move westward toward the Yucatan or the Bahamas by next week. The Hurricane Hunters are scheduled to fly into some of those waves on Thursday. The farthest west tropical wave, Invest 91L, will likely develop into a tropical depression or tropical storm later today or tonight as it approaches the Caribbean Sea. Hurricane season peaks in September.
