Moving through the end of the week two key forecast models are in disagreement in terms of track and intensity of a tropical disturbance in the southern Gulf of Mexico. One keeps the system along the coast of Florida and the other brings it near the Louisiana coast through the weekend and into next week. In either scenario, increased showers and thunderstorms appear likely Thursday through the weekend. Rainfall totals of 3-6 inches are possible over the next week with locally higher amounts. This could lead to some flooding issues. Stay tuned as a wetter forecast could necessitate adjustments to Memorial Day Weekend plans.
(It's not even hurricane season yet!--well, officially not until June 1)
Increasing afternoon showers and thunderstorms plus a possible tropical disturbance will lead to increased rain chances and totals of 3-6"+ through the #MemorialDayWeekend. #LaWX #MsWX https://t.co/nUnZktrQ9P— WBRZ Weather (@WBRZweather) May 22, 2018
