Tropical moisture from the Gulf of Mexico will advanced toward Louisiana Tuesday leading to the return of scattered showers and thunderstorms.

The moisture, and elevated rain chances will stay through Wednesday, before drier and consequently hotter conditions move in Thursday and carry into the weekend

And with the additional cloud cover and scattered showers, temperatures will likely hold closer to the upper 80s to near 90 Tuesday and for Wednesday.

Temperature readings will begin to heat up on the 4th of July with full summer, heat and humidity, accompanied by slight rain chances at best, Friday into the weekend.

See the KATC 10 Day Forecast for the latest.

Elsewhere in the Atlantic tropics, it remains quiet and dust-filled in spots.

It's been a different story in the Eastern Pacific where the 2nd named system has become Hurricane Barbara.

Barbara is expected to become a major hurricane prior to a slow weakening process during the latter part of the National Hurricane Center's 5 -Day forecast.

The system could bring elevated winds, waves and rain chances to Hawaii in about a week's time...but likely in the form of a weak and ragged system by that time.
