WARM AND HUMID THROUGH THE WEEKEND

DAILY CHANCE OF SHOWERS/STORMS

A FEW STRONG STORMS POSSIBLE THROUGH THURSDAY

Today: Warm & humid with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs 77-83. Southwest wind 5-15 mph.

Tonight: Mild & muggy with a chance of showers and thunderstorms. Patchy fog late. Lows 59-65. South wind 5 mph.

Wednesday: Warm & humid with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs 76-82. Southwest wind 5-15 mph.

Weather Summary:

A large area of high pressure continues to drift eastward today. A warm front lifts northward as well keeping us warm and increasing humidity levels today. Some showers are possible through the morning. Scattered shower and storms are possible this afternoon and evening.

As high pressure drifts east and breaks down, a summer-like weather pattern will set up for much of this week. An area of low pressure that is responsible for more flooding rains and severe weather across the Plains will be forced north of our area. Ahead of this system, a southwest air flow will result in heat, humidity, and scattered thundershowers especially in the afternoons this week. Best chances look to be today through Thursday with isolated thundershowers Friday through Sunday. 

I wouldn't cancel any outdoor plans, but check back for more details on the forecast. Some of the better-developed storms may contain small hail, gusty winds and downpours. An isolated severe storm today through Thursday cannot be ruled out. Stay with us for updates. 

We will be stuck in a warm and moist pattern through Monday. That means temperatures in the low to mid 80s with a daily shot of showers and thunderstorms with some areas getting a lot of rain while other see little to none each day.

Recap: Highs in the lower to middle 80s and lows in the lower to middle 60s this week.

Our average high is 78°, low 54°.
