The hot and humid conditions stick with us into the weekend with daytime highs reaching for the mid 90s after starting off the morning in the upper 70s Saturday. A bit more sunshine is in store for the first part of the day, but like the past few days, daytime heating may help spark a few isolated showers/storms before the first half of the weekend is over, but more of us than not look to sit on the drier side.

Rain chances build heading into the second half of the weekend as upper level high pressure loosens its grip on the Brazos Valley and a slug of tropical moisture crawls out of the Gulf of Mexico. This will allow for more scattered coverage of rain and storms as early as Sunday afternoon, with higher rain chances sticking with us through the better part of next week. We’ll keep eyes on the potential for locally heavy rainfall that could lead to minor, brief street flooding under a few stronger storms, but the increased cloud cover and consecutive rain chances should hold highs below average, in the mid and upper 80s Monday and Tuesday. The scattered rain chances remain in the forecast as the calendar flips to July through the Independence Day Weekend.
