The Labor Day weekend starts of with a few storms Friday night and ends with a few storms returning. The initial batch of storms starts off with a front pushing into the Houston area early evening. The same front working in conjunction with an upper low in the gulf will help pull moist air back into the Houston area for the end of the Holiday weekend. Less humidity with lows in the 60s will settle in just North of interstate 10 as the cool front glides beyond Galveston Saturday morning. The good news here is that with each passing front our hurricane threat lessons as the gulf waters start to cool off. The beach water temperatures remain warm for the holiday weekend and the lakes look great for boating.
We will continue to track Earl over the weekend, but significant weakening and modification is expected over the next 48 hours. The main reason is that Earl is moving over much cooler waters and absorbing much drier air from the West. This will likely lead to Earl losing much of its tropical characteristics and just become a rain maker for New England and Canadian provinces this weekend. Whats left of Earl will likely be absorbed into a remnant low along the western Atlantic Below is the future track of Earl along the U.S. and Canadian Atlantic region. The storm clears the region just in time for the Holiday with Tropical Storm Fiona remaining offshore. Have a great holiday weekend !
