Rainy weekend forecast

Today's Forecast

After a rainy Friday the potential for wet weather continues into the rest of the weekend as a tropical wave moves north out of the Gulf of Mexico.  Fortunately although the feature bringing the rain showed turning in satellite and radar imagery upper level sheer and quick movement towards land prevented any advance development.  What is happening is that the plume of moisture allowed a large cluster of storms to develop and move northward over the Louisiana and Mississippi coast thanks to an upper trough to our north.  The trough is pulling the tropical moisture northward keeping higher rain chances though Saturday evening. Expect rain coverage to be up to 80% by Saturday afternoon. Sunday it looks like rain coverage begins to die down a bit and we can start to salvage a bit of the weekend with about 50% of us seeing rain Sunday and even less on Labor Day. There is a bright side as temperatures will be less hot with highs in the mid to upper 80s as clouds and rain cut back on the sunshine.
