Tropical Storm Beta updates and wet work week

Tropical Storm Beta updates and wet work week
Tropical Storm Beta and a perfect weekend.

Happy Sunday ArkLaTex!

Clouds will increase during the day. Rain chances will bump up to around 20 percent for the evening, but most will stay dry. Highs on Sunday are back in the low 80s with very comfortable humidity.

For the work week, rain chances will begin to increase as Tropical Storm Beta continues in the Gulf and eventually on land on the Texas coast Monday eveing/Tues morning. Rain chances on Monday are around 40 percent chance with highs in the 70s and low 80s!

Tuesday also officially marks the start of the Fall season. There will sadly be some rain around coming from the tropics. Plan on rain Tuesday and Wednesday next week with the possibility that some of it could be heavy as Tropical Storm Beta moves inland near or in the ArkLaTex bringing heavy rain and gusty winds.

The rain will wind down Thursday but some may still need the umbrella. Lucky for us, we’ll see another day with highs in the 70s!

TROPICS: Tropical Storm Beta continues to move slowly in the Gulf but is forecast to make landfall along the Texas coast either late Monday evening or Tuesday morning. Latest 4am update shows Beta near the ArkLaTex Thursday as a Tropical Depression. So far, I-20 and south could see anywhere from 1.00 inch of rain to 5+ depending on the track. North of I-20 may see trace amounts to 2 inches. Plenty of uncertainty, but plenty of time to figure it out and we’ll keep you udpated.

Have a great weekend!
