Weather

Hot and mostly dry for now before rain chances return...

StormTracker Morning Forecast…

Today: A ridge will keep things hot and mostly dry today. A shower or two will be possible, but the rain chance is 10% or less. Highs will be in the lower 90s.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy and quiet tonight, although a shower cannot be ruled out. Low near 71.

Tuesday: Moisture begins to surge back into the region. Rain chances gradually increase to around 30-40%. High temperature near 89.

Wednesday: Rain chances increase to around 50-60% for the area as deep tropical moisture is pulled into the region. High temperature near 88.

Thursday: Showers and storms are possible, mainly during the afternoon hours. Rain chance is around 40%. High near 89.

Friday: Tropical moisture continues to be pulled in from the Gulf, which will keep our rain chances elevated. Rain chance is around 40%. High near 89.

Weekend: We will be monitoring the potential system in the Gulf. What happens with the system will determine what our rain chances will be like this weekend and into next week. As of now, we are keeping rain chances around 40% on Saturday and 60% on Sunday.

Tracking the Tropics: Remnants of Tropical Storm Amanda from the Pacific will have to be watched in the coming days. If it emerges into the Bay of Campeche, it will have the potential to become a tropical depression or storm in the coming days – Next named storm will be Cristobal. Model guidance will continue to vary over the coming days, so be sure to check back in with us daily. Some models show it moving over the Gulf and then turning toward Texas and Mexico as a depression or storm. Others show it moving toward the northern Gulf coast as a depression or storm. It’s still too early to determine what will happen with the system. All in all, wherever it ends up, it will bring very heavy rain with it – especially to the east of it. This is still 6-8 days out. A lot can change between now and then.
