8/25 – Rob’s “Hurricane Harvey/Weekend Forecast”
The local radar is fairly quiet this morning as most eyes are on Hurricane Harvey. Harvey will play a major role in our forecast for the next week. Today though, Harvey should keep most of us dry today with subsiding air on the east side of the storm. Only isolated activity is expected this afternoon through evening. Rain chances start to go up tomorrow as the interaction with Hurricane Harvey begins for our area. Some of the outer rain bands could move into our area on Saturday enhanced by the daytime heating and the stalled frontal boundary…of course they will be pretty good rain producers.
The bulk of the heavy rainfall through Sunday should remain to the west. Going into next week there are still more questions rather than answers with the track of Hurricane Harvey, and that has a huge influence with our forecast here for next week. Latest guidance with Hurricane Harvey still has the storm moving into Texas and stalling there for a few days before moving back over water and moving back into Texas heading due north over east Texas.
Stay weather aware and continue to prepare for the potential for HEAVY RAINFALL early next week…
