Heat Relief Coming Slowly...

Today’s late PM T-Storms brought welcomed relief to many locations as the down bursts brought cooler air down to the surface.  Coupled with the late cloud cover, it felt almost nice out tonight.   The overall thinking has not changed any from yesterday with a massive heat wave shifting to the Northeast for this weekend with several upper level disturbances moving westward towards us.  Tonight’s radar loop shows a weak rotation starting to take place over south Georgia that should be centered over the Florida Panhandle tomorrow , the MS/AL coasts on Sunday and over us for Monday & Tuesday.   Our rainiest days should be as the upper system moves over us with decreasing chances for Wednesday & Thursday.    NHC is not mentioning this system yet, but don’t be surprised to see them “tag it” for possible development beginning tomorrow.   If the rotation were to shift out over the northern Gulf Monday & Tuesday, we could see some development/organization, but so far models are just picking up on the deep tropical moisture heading towards us.   I water my potted plants every day during summer heat, but if you can hold off on watering the grass till Sunday, I think many more locations will enjoy tropical downpours, even more so Monday & Tuesday. 


The tropical Eastern Pacific remains active while the Gulf, Caribbean & Atlantic are quiet.   There are several waves out in the Atlantic, but they show no signs of T-Storms and are at very low latitudes.   Enjoy your weekend and hopefully some spotty storms will bring relief from our mid 90 degree heat?  We missed the record again today(97) as we “only” got to 96.  Shreveport hit 100 so it could feel worse!  Stay tuned!
