Strong and severe thunderstorms locally on Sunday has resulted in many areas starting this morning with fog.  That will burn off, but the atmosphere is primed for strong to severe storms today after 2 PM and tomorrow. Both bring the potential for cells to turn severe.   A rain timeline slider is below.

Tropical Storms Update

Marco has been downgraded to a tropical storm and will scape the southern Louisiana border tonight. This has peaked and will remain a weaker storm as it impacts land.

Laura is now the stronger storm and expected to reach Category 2 or 3 hurricane intensity when it reaches Louisiana Wednesday night.  That storm is now poised to bring us rain by the weekend. I will have a complete tropical weather update after the 8 AM advisory.
