The Tropics remain very active this week with Nicholas dumping heavy rains across Louisiana and two other disturbances expected to form in the next 48 hours. Nicholas will linger around the south for a couple of more days before drifting north and east as a weak low. Given the southerly flow we have already, this moisture (from Nicholas) is making it into the region today and will allow for pop up showers/storms each afternoon (Thursday and Friday).
Into Saturday, another front to our north will look to bring showers and storms to the area. This one looks to stay out of the area, doing little to hamper the mid and upper 80s we'll see through the weekend. Most of the activity will be during peak heating of the day and fade with the onset of nightfall. Temps are on the cooler side of the average today, but will again increase into the mid and upper 80s by late weekend.
Other than a few isolated strong storms today, most will see hit and miss showers/storms through the evening hours. Tomorrow will clear up a bit with partly cloudy skies and isolated to scattered showers/storms in the afternoon.
