After last week when we were talking about chances for rain every day, this week will be the exact opposite. Click here
for a look at the 72 hour rainfall totals to look at how much rain different locations from the West Texas Mesonet sites got this weekend. High pressure will expand across the region keeping our sky clear but temperatures will still stay around the average high of 90°. Below is a look at our numbers from today.
While our weather pattern will be pretty mundane this week areas across the Gulf of Mexico are scrambling to see what Tropical Storm Isaac will do. The current National Hurricane Center
forecast has the storm strengthening into a Hurricane later today or overnight and then making landfall as a Category 1 or Category 2 Hurricane somewhere around Mississippi and Alabama on Wednesday morning. The official forecast is below.
The same high pressure system that will keep our sky clear this week will in essence block Isaac from affecting us and direct the remnants of the storm into the Midwest which actually needs the rain more than us this year as they are in a historic drought similar to the one we had last year.
I will have a more detailed look and update on Isaac for you tonight on the News at Nine. Matt will have an updated forecast for you first thing tomorrow morning.
