Claudette is sucking the moisture away from the Florida peninsula so we can expect drier weather for today, but rain is likely for Father’s Day.
TS Claudette has sustained winds of 45 mph and is moving north, northeast at 12 mph. Claudette is expected to make landfall along the Louisiana, Mississippi coastline shortly after forming Saturday morning.
