Triple digit heat through Sunday, MUCH needed rain on the way

Heat relief is coming with a cool front on Monday!

Much needed rain chances are coming over the next few days!

Big change in the weather pattern starting Monday:

There is hope from this unrelenting heat and mostly dry weather. A cold front moves into the state Monday.

That should help to trigger off more widespread showers and thunderstorms across the area. The front is expected to stall out around the coast sometime Tuesday, which will help to fire off more showers and thunderstorms for a few days next week, with much-needed rain!

A potential low pressure system may help bring much needed rain chances this week

10-day Forecast:

A cold front will completely change our weather pattern for the early part of next week. Along with a possible tropical low scraping along the Gulf coast, it will enhance our rain chances as well for some much needed rainfall! We’ll start the month of July with seasonable summer temperatures, no triple digits for now.

More seasonable temperatures for this week plus some much needed rain

Tracking the Tropics:

The tropics are starting to wake up as they generally do this time of summer. There is an 80% chance for tropical development in the next five days in the eastern Atlantic. The long-range models have this moving almost directly east to west headed toward Central America.

A stronger area of low pressure may form into a tropical depression over the next 2-3 days

Closer to home, we’re watching an area in the northern Gulf where thunderstorms will have a 20% chance of developing into something tropical. The “hot zone” for it has shifted further south so that if anything were to form, it appears it may be closer to Brownsville or Corpus Christi.

There is a very slight chance of a tropical low developing early this week as it slides across the Gulf.

Make sure you’re prepared for the rest of the season by getting our Hurricane Tracker App.

Lots of agreement that this system moves into Central America (Copyright 2021 by KPRC Click2Houston - All rights reserved.)
