September 17, Wednesday Evening Forecast

Good Wednesday evening everyone.
Good Wednesday afternoon everyone. Rain chances look to increase as the remnants of Hurricane Odile drift this way. However, the heaviest tropical downpours will occur in Southern Arizona, New Mexico, and far West Texas. With this in mind, today will be partly sunny and very warm with daytime highs in the 80s, if not the low 90s, across our northern counties. With tropical moisture at hand, a slight opportunity for thunderstorms will be possible over our southern counties. Tomorrow will follow suit, with a 20% chance of rain and highs in the low 80s. By Friday, the circulation of Odile will be traveling overhead, increasing the odds for rain area wide. Tropical downpours with embedded thunder could lead to concerns of flooding Friday night into Saturday, if all of the ingredients come together. As of this writing, it appears that the heaviest rain will fall in our western counties, extending upwards into the Western Oklahoma Panhandle, and Southwest Kansas. Because of the expected cloud cover and high humidity, afternoon temps on Friday and Saturday will hover only in the 70s to around 80. By Sunday, most of the tropical moisture should be to our northeast, moving away, with a mostly sunny sky returning area wide. Daytime highs for Sunday and Monday will continue in the 70s after a weak frontal passage.
