Weekend Forecast

August 29, 2009

Four years ago today, Hurricane Katrina changed the Gulf Coast forever. I remember coming home from Alabama the day before Katrina. I showed up at the station and they asked me if I would even want to go to New Orleans to cover this beast. I flatly said “no”. Just knowing the legend of what could happen to that below sea level city was enough to keep me away. Maybe that means I wasn’t meant to be in TV news? Maybe it means after all these years that we have actual evidence that I’m a sane person!

Saturday: Mostly cloudy with a 60% chance for thundestorms. Highs will be in the upper 80s to near 90, with variable wind. The wind could get quite strong near storms.

Saturday Night: Partly cloudy with a 30% chance for thunderstorms. Lows will be in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

Sunday: Partly cloudy with a 50% chance for thunderstorms. Highs will be in the upper 80s to lower 90s.

Sunday Night: Decreasing clouds and a bit cooler. Lows will be in the middle 60s.

Monday: Mostly clear and pleasant! Highs will be in the upper 80s with much less humidity.

Tuesday through Friday: Highs will range from the upper 80s Tuesday and Wednesday up to the lower 90s Thursday and Friday. We’ll see a slow increase in humidity toward the weekend, but rain chances will stay low. I think there could be a few showers by Friday, but elsewhere through the week things are looking good. The great news is the low temperatures. They will be in the upper 50s and lower 60s Tuesday through Thursday morning, and will only pick back up into the middle 60s by Friday morning. Enjoy it!
