Hurricane Delta officially made landfall around 6:15pm CDT along Louisiana’s coast as a strong Category 2 hurricane. This storm will continue to weaken as it moves inland, but it will still contain quite a punch for the southeast.
Closer to home, the big story continues to be the continued extreme drought, but a welcome change in temperatures is on the horizon. A strong trough will dig into the region, bringing much cooler air to the South Plains. Temperatures will return to average to start the week in the mid-to-upper 70s. Long term models still keep us dry, and we will warm back into the mid-80s next week once again.
Have a great evening!
