Synopsis: Moist and unstable atmosphere remains over the area. With daytime heating, scattered thunderstorms will once again pop up across the area. The best chances will be in the afternoon and evening, when daytime heating is at a maximum. Due to the very hot temperatures adding extra energy into the atmosphere, some of the storms could be strong or even severe. We continue to watch the disturbance in the far southern Gulf, this area still remains disorganized and weak, but it is expected to become better organized and move further north. The National Hurricane Center as increased the probability of development to 90% over the next five days. So far, model runs are keeping this system to our east toward Louisiana. However, with the system being this close, we will need to monitor. In the meantime, the heat will be the main issue, with heat indices 100 plus in the afternoon. ~ Trey
