Tropical Storm Zeta forms. Rain and cool weather ahead for the ArkLaTex
Zeta update plus a look at heavy rain coming to the ArkLaTex

Happy Sunday ArkLaTex! Tropical Storm Zeta formed overnight and the clouds hung on to the ArkLaTex.

Monday and during the work week, we’ll have on and off chances for rain most days with cloudy skies and below average temperatures. On Monday, we have a 20% chance of rain with highs still getting into the low and mid 70s. On Tuesday, rain chances are about the same with however a front from the previous day will keep highs on Tuesday back down in the 60s. If you like 60 degree weather, we’ll see that for the rest of the work week.

Wednesday is when the heaviest rain and storms will move through the ArkLaTex. We can expect a few spots of light to moderate rainfall that gradually increases during the afternoon and evening. The drive home may include heavy rain and thunderstorms across the ArkLaTex. This will be the best day to see more widespread rainfall.

TROPICS: We now have Tropical Strom Zeta. This storm will linger in the southern Gulf of Mexico near the Yucatan Peninsula during the beginning of the work week. By Tuesday and Wednesday this storm will head north in the Gulf. A Louisiana landfall as a Tropical Storm is possible, but not completely certain. LA coast to the Florida panhandle will have to monitor as well since they are in the cone of uncertainty. The extra moistures pushing into Louisiana may help with additional shower chances.

Have a fantastic weekend!
