Hot with isolated showers early this week

Carrie's 10 PM First Alert Forecast

We are going to be hot and humid for the first half of this week. Summer’s last hurrah, if you will. Highs will be in the mid 90s with isolated showers possible both Tuesday and Wednesday.

Thursday, a cold front will slip in from the east and bring us slightly cooler temperatures and lower humidity for a short time. Highs will drop back to near 90 for the end of the week and into the weekend.

There is a tropical wave in the northwestern Gulf of Mexico, but development chances remain low. It looks like a rain-maker for Texas and SW Louisiana. The wave in the Atlantic Basin, Invest 97L, has a high chance for development and could become our next system which would get the name Imelda. Hurricane Humberto is likely to become a major hurricane mid-week before brushing to the west of Bermuda.
