A bit of humidity relief is on the menu for us following an overnight ‘cold’ front. Temps may be a bit cooler for the next couple of days, but dew points dip from the 70s into the 60s, which will be noticeable in terms of heat index, etc. It looks as though we’ll be dry enough for mainly clear skies for the next 2 or 3 days, before we have to start worrying about the remnants of Barry.
The longer-range forecast will be determined by what happens with Barry, which is likely to be named over the next 24 hours in the northern Gulf of Mexico. Because steering is so weak, there is quite a bit of uncertainty with the initial path….but eventually the remnant low looks to move northward up the Mississippi Valley. Models are now bringing the outer showers with Barry into our southern counties as early as Sunday afternoon or evening…with the main impacts on Monday and Tuesday. Again this will likely be tweaked, but showers and potential thunderstorms look likely early next week…and there could be some locally heavy rainbands, so stay tuned.
