Still Near 100° this Weekend...Better Rain Coming?
We finally start to see that high pressure begin to break down and head west through the weekend -- however, hot highs stay with us for those outdoor plans. Afternoon highs are expected anywhere between 97° to 99° for most, with a few localized areas possibly reaching 100° both Saturday and Sunday. While a rain chance won't be ruled out -- the potential is small and extremely isolated (10% to 20%).
Next week is where things may (finally) get a bit more interesting. With that high pressure to the west, a weak boundary will try to reach Texas by Monday. At the same time, a ragged area of low pressure sliding west along the coast should add more moisture to the atmosphere. All put together that could mean widely scattered rain and storms by Monday and Tuesday. Some could still miss out on this needed rainfall...and the details will need to be fine tuned. That said, something to keep an eye on...
Saturday Night: Mostly clear. Low: 77. Wind: S 5-10 mph.
Sunday: Partly cloudy with a 20% chance of showers and thunderstorms. High: 98. Wind: S 5-10 mph.
Sunday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 77. Wind: S 5-10 mph.
Monday: Partly cloudy with a 40% chance of rain and thunderstorms. High: 96. Wind: S 5-10 mph.
