Wet Weekend Coming?

Our current dry spell has reached 5 days and should make 2 more before rain chances return.  Showers coming for this weekend are not a sure bet as chances will be highest along the Florida beaches (80%+), 40-50% here and <20% in Baton Rouge.  Computer models are having a hard time on how much deep tropical moisture streams out of the Gulf.   A slight shift farther to the west will make for a Wet Sat-Sunday.  A slight shift to the east will result in a mostly dry weekend.  Don’t cancel outdoor plans just yet.


The tropics remain quiet with none of the models showing development for the next 5-7 days.  Our next shot of real cold air probably won’t arrive until the 2nd week of October.  We’ll stay summer-like for the next 2 weeks.  Stay tuned !
