This evening we will see increasing cloud cover with lows in the mid-70s. It’s going to be a breezy evening with winds from the south gusting up to 20mph.
Plenty of summer heat is expected on Wednesday! Temperatures will top out in the mid-90s. We’ll likely get more record highs for the next few days as the heat will not break until the weekend.
Weekend rain possible:
Our next cold front we’re tracking will affect southeast Texas this weekend. This front looks strong enough to bring in some soaking rain showers and possibly thunderstorms. With our worsening drought we need all we can get. The chance of rain from Saturday through early next week ranges from 20% to 40%.
Temperatures will finally fall to average at the start of next week. We could see additional rain too through Tuesday.
What’s Brewing In The Tropics:
We are now at the time of year where the long-range models often hint of our next hurricane. The American model is notorious for creating strong storms that usually disappear as we get closer to the date. Here is the forecast for Friday May 27th. Notice the contrast from the European model to the GFS (American). While it is rare for a tropical strong storm or hurricane to form in May, the American model has been consistent with attempting to drum up something at the end of next week. We’ll continue to monitor this possible development.
