Currently, it's all quiet on FIRST ALERT Doppler radar after late-night showers and storms. Early temperatures continue to run about a handful of degrees warmer than the norm. Again Wednesday, it will be hit and miss showers throughout southeast Louisiana and southwest Mississippi, with 50% coverage and it will be another hot spring afternoon with a high in the lower 90°s.
Overnight, a few additional showers are possible, with a low of 71°. Thursday, there is a 50% to 60% chance for rain and storms, with a daytime high in the upper 80°s. Our "weather focus" remains centered on "Invest 90L." The latest update from the National Hurricane Center gives it a 60% chance of formation within the next five days, still expecting the low-pressure area to move into the east-central Gulf of Mexico.
Two of our forecast models, the European and American, remain totally opposite regarding the eventual track of Invest 90L. What "can" be agreed upon is the fact that heavy rainfall will likely cause significant challenges along the Gulf Coast over the upcoming Memorial Day holiday weekend.
