High and dry again, but still watching IsaacAugust 28th, 2012 at 7:51 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
A cold front brought some rain yesterday… but it wasn’t quite as much as we needed. Here is a look at some of the totals, as reported by our Weathercheckers… anywhere from a trace up to about .4″:
Now we’re back to dry conditions as high pressure is building in from the north. We will continue to see sunshine and pleasantly warm temperatures. Highs both today and Wednesday will be near-normal in the lower 80s. We do get a little warmer Thursday and Friday as the high moves east and our winds become more southerly. We should be in the mid-upper 80s these days. And then the rain chances begin! We are still watching Isaac (still a tropical storm) in the Gulf of Mexico this morning. The storm is very close to becoming a hurricane, and is expected to officially do that today before making landfall tonight. Here is the forecast path as it comes ashore along the Louisiana coast:
For us, Isaac will brings good news/bad news… the good: we have a pretty good chance at getting a nice soaking rain out of this, which will help with the drought situation. The bad: it’s likely going to happen over the holiday weekend. Here’s the extended Isaac track:
Stay tuned to the latest on Isaac and the upcoming weekend forecast!
