Yesterday we dodged most of the heavy rain as I only recorded .21″ of rain, many places just to the north, west and south recorded more than an inch of rain..
Today a cold front is moving through this morning with a band of showers that are moving east and most of the rain will be out of this area by 8am. Sunshine will return this afternoon and it will become much less humid but stay warm.. Wednesday will be a refreshingly pleasant day with plenty of sunshine and very low humidity. Warming trend Thursday and by Friday temperatures will be approaching 90. As we go into the Labor Day weekend it will start out quite warm, looks as if most of the remains of Isaac will stay to the west of us although there may be some showers on Monday.
Meanwhile Isaac is only now approaching hurricane force and will move ashore near the New Orleans area. Torrential rains and some wind gusts to hurricane force will be felt there but thankfully it will not be anything close to the terrible damage caused by Katrina 7 years ago.
The forecast: Today, showers ending followed by clearing, less humid, highs mid 80s.
Tonight: mostly clear and comfortable, low in the lower 60s.
Wednesday, sunny with low humidity, high near 80.
Thursday, Sunny, high in the mid 80s.
Friday, sunny, quite warm and a little more humid, high near 90.

Have a great day!
