More Clouds, More Rain, Less Hot

A weak area of low pressure was clearly visible on the daylight satellite loop centered over SE Louisiana.  Numerous storms erupted on the south and eastern sides producing a cloud cover that kept the South Shore mainly in the 80s for most of the day.  Eventually our high reached 92, but that didn’t happened until late afternoon.   IF this weak low hangs around, we could see more storms develop along the coast before daybreak and spread inland during daytime heating.   That should keep us slightly less hot, however, there are signs the summer heat returns by Friday as the upper ridge builds back over us.  Less than 8 weeks until October.


Dr. Gray’s CSU team came out with their updated hurricane numbers, but they remained unchanged at 8 named storms(5 more to go).  NOAA’s numbers will be issued on Thursday.  Expect no surprises.  Stay tuned!
