10/9 – Rob’s Friday Mid-Morning Forecast/Delta Update
TROPICAL STORM WATCH & STORM SURGE WARNING for south Mississippi has been DROPPED…
Hurricane Delta continues to move north across the NW’tern GOM heading towards SW Louisiana. This will cause conditions to become worse with time today mainly along and west of the Miss River. Delta is expected to move inland this evening as a strong hurricane over SW LA. Low end Tropical Storm conditions for our area will remain through early Saturday and slowly improve through the remainder of the day Saturday. Delta is expected to weaken to a tropical storm by late Saturday as it moves through northeast LA.
A cold front is then expected to move through the area Tuesday or Wed and another by next weekend. At this time, not a lot is expected with these cold fronts with the exception of some shower activity. But there will be plenty of time to pick these features apart as we move toward that time frame.
