FORECAST SUMMARY:

As of 7:04 AM, it was warm and partly cloudy. Most areas were in the upper 70’s and lower 80’s. There was a light south wind.

Today will feature a chance of isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms. Severe storms are not expected, however strong gusty winds, occasional lightning, and heavy downpours are all possible. The best chance for activity is for areas along and north of I-20 during the afternoon and evening. High temperatures will reach the middle to upper 90’s with increasing clouds. There will be a light southeast wind.

It looks to be mainly dry during the overnight with partly clear skies. That being said, an isolated shower or non-severe storm cannot be ruled out. Southeast winds will stay light as temperatures fall into the upper 70’s.

Rain and storms become likely on Wednesday. Severe storms are not likely, however strong gusty winds, occasional lightning, and locally heavy rain will be possible. High temperatures will be in the low to middle 90’s with light and variable winds. It will feel humid.

Chances for rain showers and thunderstorms will decrease on Thursday. The chance of activity will still be there. Right now, I am just going with a 20% chance. Temperatures will increase into the upper 90’s with partly sunny skies.

A brief shower or storm cannot be ruled out Friday and Saturday. The forecast will most likely stay dry. There will be a light ESE to SE wind.

Temperatures will increase this weekend as dry weather settles back in. Sunday will see highs return to the triple digits.
