We’ll see another hot day ahead of storms this afternoon. Highs will likely reach the low to mid 90s across most of the area around lunch time or early in the afternoon. By mid-afternoon at the latest, widespread storms will bubble up across the area as a weak cold front sags into the region.

We'll stay a little hotter than typical for early August. Highs will be in the mid 90s for highs through the weekend and into early next week. The heat index could peak at times at around 108 degrees.There will be a chance for storms each day, but many spots will stay dry.

Rain isn’t totally out of the forecast just yet. A Flash Flood Watch will continue for the area through 6 PM. Scattered showers and storms could be heavy at times today.Thankfully, rainfall amounts were not extreme north of the Lake this weekend, so major river flooding is no longer a threat.
Heavy rain and isolated tornadoes will be the primary threats through this evening. These are trailing bands from Tropical Storm Barry whose center is well removed in the northern parts of the state. Due to the lack of substantial rain yesterday, river flooding forecasts have come way down.
Hurricane Barry is a low-grade Category 1, but won’t stay that way for long. It is expected to weaken as it moves inland, though still producing gusty winds and heavy rain in bands that spread all the way to Alabama.
All eyes are on Tropical Storm Barry as it begins its northwesterly turn toward the Louisiana coastline. Conditions locally will remain calm for any preparations you need to finalize through the first half of the day.
A few storms are possible again this afternoon. They could contain some hail and strong winds in addition to heavy rain. Otherwise, it will be fairly hot with highs in the low to mid 90s.The weekend, Gulf winds will return which will increase our chance for afternoon showers and storms each day.
