Holiday weekend forecast: Hazy and humid with a dash of storms

Warmer than normal with haze still in the picture

Happy Fourth of July!
Fireworks from Freedom Over Texas Celebration

Rain-free fireworks for the Fourth of July night but the steamy evening has led to a very warm overnight with many areas only bottoming out in the upper 70s and low 80s. Sunday will see another day of mid to upper 90s, feeling more like the low 100s so be ready for some shade and A/C, you’ll need it in the afternoon!

Mid to upper 90s again tomorrow

The dome of high pressure that has been helping to keep rain away this past week, is moving toward the west which will create a weakness in the atmosphere and an increased chance for rain in the coming days. Expect a VERY slight rain chance tonight with higher chances tomorrow into Monday and the highest rain chance for the week on Tuesday.

Storms for Mon-Tue before more heat moves in late week

For today plan to drink plenty of water as the actual temperature heads fairly quickly into the upper 80s and low 90s before topping out in the upper 90s this afternoon.

Sunday 10-day forecast

The rain chances increase as we start the week into Wednesday, which will drop our high temperatures into the low 90s for a couple of days. We start drying out by Wednesday and that means the temperatures will head back up to the upper 90s by next weekend.
