Fall starting off on a hot foot

The first day of Fall is Monday (09/23), and it’s going to continue to be hot.

The Crossroads won’t be looking at corn mazes and pumpkin spice lattes anytime soon. Temperatures for tomorrow will remain in the 90s across the region. There is a small chance for an isolated shower or thunderstorm as the day goes on and the sea breeze moves inland. As much as we all want to, you can’t break out the scarves and sweaters just yet.

For the rest of the week, the forecast looks much like Monday. It will be a little drier mid-week but the moisture returns just in time for the weekend. Isolated showers and thunderstorms will be possible every day (even the drier ones) and increase heading into the weekend. Looking at highs in the low 90s every day, and lows in the mid 70s.

As for the tropics, the first disturbance I mentioned in yesterday’s post developed into Tropical Storm Karen this morning. It’s on track to go to Puerto Rico as of right now. Jerry remains a non-concern to us here in Texas. The disturbance off the African coast is highly likely to turn into a tropical depression sometime today or tomorrow. We will continue to monitor these storms for changes in path.
