Wednesday Morning: Spotty rain with stifling heat; Lower rain chances ahead

Weather

Today: Spotty showers and storms, mainly during the peak heating hours. Rain chance is around 40-50%. Highs will be near 90, but it will feel like the upper 90s.

Tonight: Partly cloudy and quiet. Morning temps will be in the 70s again.

Thursday & Friday: 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 only a few pop ups. Highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s. Rain chance is around 20%.

Saturday: Sun and clouds with highs in the lower 90s. Rain chance is around 20%.

Sunday: Scattered rain returns to the area, but it doesn’t look to be a washout. Highs near 90.

Tracking the Tropics: No immediate concern, but the Climate Prediction Center is highlighting an area to watch in the southwestern/western Gulf in the next 1-2 weeks. Just something to watch for now.
