Hit-or-Miss Rain Chance Continues
A small area of disturbed weather in the Western Gulf of Mexico will keep the chance for passing rain in the forecast. No -- this is not expected to become a tropical concern, but it will keep ample tropical moisture and the chance for passing rain / tropical downpours in the forecast.
Tuesday: a dry morning is expected with that hit-or-miss rain / isolated, non-severe storm chance coming to life for the afternoon & early evening. Wednesday, as long as that ragged area of low pressure moves a bit closer to the Central Gulf, the rain chance should be highly isolated. By Thursday, we'll bring that chance back up a touch. Overall theme -- keep the umbrella for the afternoon hours this week...you may just get a chance to use it. With a slightly lower rain chance, afternoon highs are expected to return to the seasonable low 90s by mid-week. Drier days ahead for the weekend, which means hotter highs in the mid 90s.
Monday Night: Mostly cloudy with a 30% chance of showers and isolated thunderstorms before midnight. Low: 72. Wind: E 0-5 mph.
Tuesday:> Partly cloudy with a 30% chance of showers and thunderstorms. High: 90. Wind: E 5-10 mph.
Tuesday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 73. Wind: SSE 5-10 mph.
Wednesday: Sun / cloud mix with a 20% chance for afternoon rain / thunderstorms. High: 91. Wind: SSE 5-10 mph.
