From Elliot Wilson:
Tropical Depression Imelda will continue tracking over east Texas near the TX/LA state line. It’ll also take more of a northeastward track, and is looking to bring a good amount of rainfall to western Louisiana heading into the weekend. Because of this slight eastward turn, our rain chances will be lower heading into the weekend, with areas around I-45 having the best shot at seeing a few scattered showers today and Friday. We start in the low to mid 70’s this morning with muggy conditions for most, as Imelda will still put a decent amount of moisture in our area. We’ll see mostly sunny skies this morning, with a few more clouds in the afternoon. Highs will be in the low 90’s for most this afternoon, with a few areas along I-45 possibly staying in the upper 80’s with a 30% rain chance.
Imelda will die off heading into Saturday, with only a spotty shower being possible Saturday afternoon due to lingering moisture from Imelda. Otherwise it’ll be partly cloudy with highs in the low 90’s Saturday afternoon. Dry conditions return by the end of the weekend, with temperatures becoming slightly warmer in the low to mid 90’s. A mid-level low will move in from the west heading into the work week, bringing us some spotty rain chances once we get into Tuesday. However, the low won’t get closer to our area until the end of next week, which is where we could possibly see some better rain chances.
