9/4 – Rob’s Wednesday Morning Forecast

The tropics are getting very active as we now have five areas of interest along with Tropical Storm Fernand in the extreme Western Gulf Of Mexico. A strong upper level ridge over the Rockies along with a surface high-pressure over the southeast will prevail through the work week. A very dry pattern with high temperatures reaching well into the 90s: as subsidence from Hurricane Dorian and Tropical Storm Fernand takes a grip on the central northern Gulf coast.

Hot and dry conditions will continue through mid to late week as upper level ridge over the Plains builds eastward alongside a surface high-pressure parked over southeast Louisiana. Heat indexes could approach the 107-110 range on Thursday which could prompt a heat advisory with later updates. A weak frontal boundary will approach the area by early next week along with increased moisture values bringing increased rain potential into the area.
