We are getting hit with a double whammy for storm development today, so the Storm Prediction center bumped us up to an Enhanced Risk for severe weather later today. The main force behind these storm is a strong cold front. Then the afternoon heat and humidity will increase the severity of the storms that do move through.

It’s been almost two weeks since the mercury last hit 80° or higher in Fort Wayne, but that’s changing on Labor Day.

Labor Day will be much hotter and more humid with a chance for storms.

We started tracking Harvey before the weekend began and little has changed with its position over the past few days. As a result, the Houston and surrounding metro area continues to experience the worst flooding with this storm. Around Houston 10”-20” (and in some spots – 30”) of rain have already fallen and the National Hurricane Center continues to predict another 10”-20” between now and Thursday.
Harvey’s rain won’t leave Texas until late in the week. But, flooding concerns will linger long after that as the multiple feet of water drain away.
Harvey remains a tropical storm with winds up to 40 mph and severe weather, including heavy rainfall.
