Back to School Forecast:
Lots of kids and teachers and staff heading back to school Monday! It will be steamy and muggy for drop off with temperatures generally in upper 70s and low 80s. Expect to dodge some downpours again for pick up in the afternoon but it appears they will be scattered as the heavy rain threat should hold off until the evening.
Slow-moving cold front
A slow-moving cool front will slowly sag south across the state of Texas bringing heavy rain chances both Monday and Tuesday across much of the area. Because of the high amount of moisture and slow movement of the boundary, we will likely see a chance for heavy downpours which may lead to a threat of some minor flooding either day.
Both Monday and Tuesday carry a moderate risk of flooding in some areas. The speed (or lack thereof) of the sagging front across the area will determine how much rain much of the area will get.
Rainfall Totals This Week:
The heavy rain threat will be highest on Mon-Wed. as an area of low pressure will scrape across the state of Texas and will pull in plenty of moisture that can trigger heavy downpours at times. Most areas will see between 2-4″ inches of rain. However, if the front stalls, we could see some training of thunderstorms, which would increase the rain totals and threat for flooding. This forecast will change as we get closer so be sure to check back with updates!
Temperatures today and for most of next week will be cooler than normal. Rain will be a constant companion every day next week. Rainfall totals will be between 2-6″ and even higher in NE parts of Texas! A good chunk of drought-busting for sure.
Tracking the tropics:
A second tropical wave is coming off of the coast of Africa and has a 20% chance of development. There is plenty of time to watch it for any signs of development. Make sure you have our Hurricane Tracker App for updates on this system and others that will form in the tropics.
