Showers dissipating

Carrie's 10 PM First Alert Forecast

We have seen a few showers and thunderstorms tonight. These thunderstorms are dissipating as they move southwest. Lows will be in the low 70s where it rained to upper 70s where it did not rain.

We are expecting more widespread scattered showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon hours over the next few days, through Saturday.

Some of the thunderstorms could produce gusty winds and heavy downpours. It will still be hot each day until we start to see the thunderstorms building. Highs will climb into the upper 80s to low 90s in the afternoon with the heat index values topping 100 degrees.

Tropical Depression Eleven formed in the Central Atlantic on Tuesday afternoon. It is forecast to become Tropical Storm Josephine in the next 24-48 hours. It will be moving westward through the Atlantic Basin toward the Lesser Antilles by the end of the week. It’s too early to know if this will impact the U.S., but it is currently not a threat to the Gulf Coast.
