.DISCUSSION...
Typical weather across the nation w/ storms in the plain states
and along the east coast. Temperatures range from upper 50s in the
northern plain states to the mid 70s across the gulf region this
am and mid 80s in the Florida Keys. Closer to home looking at
storms in the coastal waters off southeast Texas and southern
Louisiana.

A weak boundary in the coastal waters this morning will gradually
fall apart today. The ridge aloft that shifted back to the west
during the first part of the week is creeping back into our
region. This will dry the atmosphere out... with fewer clouds and
afternoon rains... temperatures are set to rise a bit over the
weekend and into next week. The heat index will again pop above
the century mark in southeast Texas today with southern Louisiana
expected to follow suit tomorrow. Since there is nothing that
looks to push the heat out of the region... next week will be hot
w/ afternoon heat indices will be above the century mark across
southeast Texas and southern and central Louisiana.
