An inverted upper level trough will hover over the Texas region through Friday. This area of low pressure aloft will make it possible for afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms. Activity will be isolated and mainly in the southeast and eastern half of the forecast area. Most of us will stay dry, however short and infrequent periods of heavy rain will be possible along with lightning. The severe weather threat will remain low.
Upper level ridging will strengthen over Texas as we head into the weekend. A few showers and thunderstorms will be possible mainly in the northern half of the forecast area as upper level divergence upstream the ridge axis will create a favorable environment for afternoon and evening convective development. Most of the activity will stay to our north. The severe weather threat is low.
Temperatures for the rest of the work week will be hovering around if not a few degrees above average. Temperatures won’t reach the triple digits because of partly sunny skies along with high levels of moisture in the atmosphere. However, with all this moisture in the atmosphere heat indexes will be around 100°.
By the weekend and the start of next week an upper level trough axis will move over our area. This will cause temperatures to rise into the upper 90’s to near 100°. The forecast looks to be mostly dry through the middle of next week.
