08/28 Ryan’s “Tropical Rain” Monday Forecast
Despite the added tropical moisture that moved in over the weekend, we didn’t see much “tropical rain,” but that is beginning to change. While we won’t see anything as bad as the historic flooding occurring in Houston, parts of Louisiana will see upwards of 20+ inches of rain in the coming days while South MS shouldn’t see more than 10″ at the most. The total amount of rainfall is still heavily dependent on how far East Harvey pushes before turning inland, but the current National Hurricane Center forecast would likely only bring us around 2-6″ to the local area.
Harvey has now pushed back out into the Gulf, and is expected to strengthen slightly over the next day as it turns North in response to a trough sweeping through the area. Harvey will likely make a second landfall as a tropical storm near the Eastern TX/LA State line on Wednesday, and will become “extra-tropical” by Saturday.
