It was another gorgeous day across the South Plains and the good news is this type of weather will continue for the rest of the week. Below is a look at our numbers from today.

 
 
 


 
 
 

While we are enjoying very pleasant tranquil weather here in the South Plains, that is not the case along the Gulf Coast. Hurricane Isaac become a hurricane earlier this afternoon and looks to make landfall around New Orleans as a category 1 hurricane. The good news for residents across this region is that the storm ingested a lot of dry air yesterday and overnight which kept it from strengthening much and now looks to make landfall as a weak category 1 hurricane versus a weak category 2 hurricane which was the thinking just 24 hours ago. That being said, lots of rain and flooding is still possible and no storm like this should be taken lightly. Below is a look at the rainfall forecast in association with Isaac provided by the Hydrometeorological Prediction Center.

 
 
 

The remnants of Isaac will take a north and then northeast turn providing the drought stricken Midwest with some much needed rain. Below is the official forecast of Isaac from the National Hurricane Center.

 
 
 

We look to stay sunny, dry and hot with temperatures warming back into the mid 90s for the first weekend of college football!

 
 
 

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.
