A frontal trough will be advancing southward on Labor Day and will help to increase rain chances a bit.

The NHC gives it a low, 30% chance of development in the next 5 days.

It is important to note that the Gulf will be nowhere near as conducive for development as it was a week ago due to increasing wind shear.

Regardless of any sort of slow development of the feature, it will likely be a rainmaker for portions of the northern Gulf Coast.

Lurking tropical moisture associated with this feature coupled with an approaching cool front will keep rain chances slightly elevated through the middle parts of the week.

Drier, more comfortable air looks to move in by week's end.

Keep it tuned to KATC for the latest.

Have a great rest of the weekend!
