This weekend we’ll see highs near 90 degrees with only a slight chance of afternoon showers. Lower rain chances are in place for the week ahead along with hotter temperatures. A drier east/northeast wind has taken over and will squash most major rain chances. The sea breeze will likely be the spot that any showers spark but not until late afternoon.

Highs will climb back into the low 90s by mid week and there will be a battle between the hot, dry air coming off a high in the Central Plains and deep tropical moisture bubbling up from the southern Gulf. Rain chance appear to stay minimal until we get closer to the weekend.

The week ahead shows a similar pattern with the chances of afternoon showers and thunderstorms. More Gulf moisture will increase rain chances slightly along with the chances for an occasional thunderstorm.

Temperatures all week are expected to be in the 90s with not much heat relief in sight. Rain chances will be in the form of afternoon showers and thunderstorms initiated by the heat of the day and the interaction with Gulf moisture. By the weekend, there is a chance to see some more widespread showers and thunderstorms from an open wave coming in from the Bay of Campeche. We’ll be watching to see if it develops into anything substantial all week
