Independence Day Weekend
Hot, sunny, and humid weather take us into the 4th of July Weekend. After a few days out of the north, southerly winds take back over and stick around through the foreseeable future. In fact, those winds turn flat out breezy by Sunday and through most of next week (which will pump in more Gulf moisture, but helps to fight the stuffy, stagnant feeling).
Highs top off around the mid-90s both Saturday and Sunday -- heat index values are expected between 103° and 106°. There will be a small 20% chance at a few passing showers both days. A front in North Texas brings a rain chance there for the 4th of July -- however, we should be far enough south to expect dry weather Monday. Highs are expected a few degrees shy of 100° for outdoor plans. Take caution & care in that heat...
Friday Night: Mostly clear. Low: 75. Wind: SSE 5 mph.
Saturday: Partly cloudy with a 20% chance of rain. High: 95. Wind: S 5-10 mph.
Saturday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 77. Wind: S 5 mph.
Sunday: Mostly sunny. 20% chance for a few showers. High: 96. Wind: S 5-15 mph.
