OUTLOOK

Afternoon showers and a few thunderstorms are in store, mainly across the mountains, through Thursday. By Friday, a broad area of low pressure over Louisiana will channel deep moisture and possibly heavy rainfall into the area throughout the weekend. Temperatures will reach normal levels today, then drop below normal Thursday into early next week.

HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK

Hazardous weather is not expected today.



TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL
200 AM EDT Wed Sep 7 2022

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

Active Systems:
The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Hurricane Danielle, located several hundred miles west-northwest of the Azores, and on recently upgraded Hurricane Earl, located several hundred miles south of Bermuda.

1. Eastern Tropical Atlantic:
An area of low pressure located several hundred miles west of the Cabo Verde Islands is producing a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions appear conducive for some development of this system, and a tropical depression could form in the next day or two while it moves westward to west-northwestward at 15 to 20 mph over the eastern and central tropical Atlantic. After that time, upper-level winds are forecast to become less conducive for development late this week.

* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...50 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...medium...60 percent.

2. African Coast:
A tropical wave currently located over western Africa is forecast to emerge offshore into the eastern Atlantic by the end of the week. Environmental conditions appear conducive for some slow development thereafter as the system moves west-northwestward over the eastern tropical Atlantic.

* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.
