Wednesday, August 26, 2020: Hurricane Laura brings some clouds and small chances for rain



Wednesday and Thursday will see an increase in cloud cover along with a chance for rain showers and thunderstorms. The best chance is Thursday. The humidity will also increase as tropical moisture moves in from the gulf. The best chance for rain will be in the eastern Big Country and Heartland. This is all due to Hurricane Laura which is forecast to strengthen into a major, category 3, hurricane before making landfall somewhere near western Louisiana and eastern Texas during the Wednesday night-Thursday morning time frame. People who live in the Houston area expanding east into Louisiana should start preparing now, and heed any warnings from safety officials. Storm surge, flooding, and extreme wind will all be concerns with this life threatening storm. This storm will have little effect on the Big Country and Heartland. Temperatures stay seasonable.

High pressure moves in Friday as temperatures jump up to the triple digits. The weekend will be dry along with a continuation of the hundred degree high temperatures.

Rain and storm chances move in Monday night along with an approaching cold front.
