Carl Arredondo - WWL-TV Chief Meteorologist

No big changes on Invest 90 today, it is still over land in the Yucatan and may not get into the extreme southern Gulf until Saturday. The potential is there for a tropical depression or subtropical depression or a subtropical storm or tropical storm to form. Since it isn't an organized system, the computer models are having a hard time seeing where it will go. All interests from LA to FL panhandle need to watch for heavy rain and coastal flooding.

Evening storms will diminish to a 20% chance overnight into morning commute. Lows Friday will be in upper 60s to 70s. 60% chance for thunderstorms Friday, Saturday, and Sunday with heavy downpours and highs in the 80s.

The 2 days where rain could be heavy will be Monday and Tuesday as the tropical system nears the northern Gulf coast. Still lots can change.
