Weekend Outlook: July 24-27, 2020

This outlook will be rather brief, because the forecast is rather simple. We’ll dry out today and Saturday, then heat and humidity return for Sunday and Monday.

Monday looks to be the hottest day, when the heat index could reach 100 in some spots. Image provided by WeatherBell.

Tropical Storm Gonzalo looks healthier and TD 8 has become Tropical Storm Hanna in the Gulf of Mexico. Loop provided by NOAA.

We’ll likely publish another blog on the tropics late Friday, but here’s a quick update for you. Tropical Depression 8 has become Tropical Storm Hanna. Tropical Storm Warnings are now in effect for much of the Central and Southern Texas coast, all the way to the mouth of the Rio Grande. A track towards South Texas is likely with landfall on Saturday. Heavy rain is still the main threat. Tropical Storm Gonzalo looks a little healthier this evening, and will likely cross the southern Windward Islands on Saturday. Once it gets past the islands, its future is still very uncertain. In the Eastern Pacific, Douglas is now a Category 4 Hurricane, but will likely start to weaken today. It should pass very close to or right across the Hawaiian Islands on Sunday as either a weakening hurricane or a strong tropical storm.
