Sunny, quiet weekend on South Plains; Barry crawls north to Louisiana

Updated:

THIS AFTERNOON: It's a sunny and hot day, but not too bad for this time of year. Lower to mid 90s across the area with some humidity.

TONIGHT: Low in the mid to upper 60s, mainly clear, light easterly wind.

SATURDAY: Sunny, high near 92. Wind NE/E 5-12mph. We can't rule out an isolated storm, but it's a low chance.

SUNDAY: Nearly a repeat of Saturday, plenty of sun with some humidity.

NEXT WEEK: It'll trend a little bit warmer through mid-week, back in the upper 90s to near 100. At this point we don't see a good sign of widespread rainfall any time soon.

BARRY: Tropical storm Barry is just below hurricane strength as of the 4 p.m. advisory. The National Hurricane Center forecasts it to be a category 1 hurricane by landfall tomorrow morning in Louisiana.

The main concern is very heavy rainfall over areas that have already dealt with flooding this week. It'll slowly move north over Louisiana next few days.


I hope you have a great weekend. Louisiana native Robert Gauthreaux III will be in with your updated forecast tomorrow.
