Tonight: Spotty showers are possible, but most areas will likely stay dry. Otherwise, partly to mostly cloudy with temperatures in the 70s.
Weekend: Rain coverage should come down a little bit into our weekend. Storms are still likely, but rain coverage shouldn’t be as widespread. Showers and storms will likely be more confined to the peak-heating hours of the day. This means we could have isolated showers during the morning, but it’s not until mid to late morning when showers begin to develop. Then, by the afternoon, storm coverage will be at its highest. Most storms should fade by sunset. Total rain coverage will be around 60 to 70 percent. Highs will be in the upper 80s. Some spots may briefly top out near 90 degrees over the weekend.
Next Week: Numerous showers and storms are in the forecast with highs in the upper 80s. Seven-day rain totals will be around 1 to 3 inches with isolated spots exceeding 3 inches.
Tracking the Tropics: A couple of tropical waves are being monitored by the National Hurricane Center. One wave is moving into the Caribbean and could eventually move into the Gulf. It’s not a guarantee, but it bears watching over the next couple of days. No imminent threats for now. Keep in mind, most hurricanes develop during the months of August, September, and October, on average.
