Tuesday Morning: Hot and steamy with scattered storms; Drier days ahead

Weather

Today: Clouds and sun with scattered showers and storms. Heavy rain, gusty wind, and frequent lightning will all be possible in any storm that develops. Best chance for storms today will be along and north of I-10/I-12 corridor and areas closest to I-55. Highs will be in the upper 80s to around 90°F, but it will feel like the mid and upper 90s. Rain chance is around 40-50%.

Tonight: A few evening storms. Mostly dry and quiet overnight. Rain chance is around 10-20%. Low near 74.

Wednesday: Scattered showers and storms, mainly during the peak heating hours. Rain chance is around 50%. Highs will be near 89°F and it will feel like the mid 90s.

Thursday-Saturday: Rain chances finally start to drop a little bit as a ridge of high pressure begins to build. We will be more in a summer weather pattern with a few pop ups. Highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s.

Sunday & Monday: Scattered storms are possible. Highs in the upper 80s.

Tracking the Tropics: An area of low pressure may develop in the Caribbean by the end of the week. Plenty of time to watch.
