Nicholas’ remaining weak circulation of clouds is rising in northern Louisiana and will drift to Arkansas before dissipating. Unfortunately, there is a lot of tropical moisture left in the North Gulf and we still have a top trough in East Texas.
Much drier air has turned around Nicholas with the strongest NNE storms in the center and along the coasts of LA / MS.
There’s a chance that the heavy rain band along the coast could backfire on us, so NWS keeps the Flash Flood Watch in effect until Sunday. If we’re lucky, this band will stay south and east with only the typical emerging storms that erupt during daytime heating.
In the tropics, NHC named the 15th storm (Odette) on the east coast. It goes to the sea and will not affect anyone. The other disturbance that Peter should become is the exit to the Atlantic, so there is no need to talk about where he might end up.
Saving the best to the last, we still have 4-5 days of humid and hot weather left, but the long-awaited REAL cold front will arrive on Wednesday sweeping away the humidity and in fact will make us fully enjoy the coming weekend. October is already here. Stay tuned!
