Expect a mild start to our Wednesday morning as we stay in a warming trend. Temperatures are kicking off in the upper-40s and lower-50s. While you may need a light jacket this morning, you won't need it for long. Outdoor lunch plans today will be warm and pleasant. Today's high temperature is expect to reach 84° with sunny skies.
Above-average temperatures and dry conditions will continue until we get to the weekend. All eyes are on Hurricane Delta. This morning it made landfall near Cancun and Playa Del Carmen in Mexico as a Category 2 hurricane. Delta is expect to move back over water and gain strength in the Gulf of Mexico. Right now, the latest models are showing it making landfall over Louisiana, Friday afternoon.
Long- range model data is looking like the leftovers of Delta will move northward and impact parts of the area. Right now, the Tri-State is projected to get as much as 2" of rain by the end of the weekend. While this may dampen your plans, this will give us some much needed rain in our abnormally dry areas.
