Today has been a pretty calm day around north Florida and South Georgia. High pressure has been in control but will continue to slide towards the east ahead of an approaching cold front. 

Tropical Storm Karen is expected to make land fall near or over portions of southern Louisiana. The WTXL viewing area is not under any tropical storm watches or warnings. We will start to see effects of Karen late tonight and into tomorrow. 

Tonight clouds will begin to roll in with the occasional shower. Tropical moisture and cloudiness tonight will keep temperatures slightly above average,  falling into the upper 60s-lower 70s.

Tomorrow you can expect periods of rain throughout the day with a mostly cloudy sky. Temperatures will only reach into the mid 80s. There could be embedded tropical downpours in some of Karen's outer rain bands that could spin into the tri-state area. Another risk will be seas slightly higher (about 2 feet) than normal. 

Tropical moisture and an approaching cold front will keep the unsettled weather pattern in the forecast through Monday. Tuesday a ridge of high pressure will build into the area and bring back beautiful, "fall-like" weather.
