Scattered Showers and Thunderstorms Tuesday, Could Barry Emerge in the Gulf?
Humid still very thick
A surface front will sink through the area today pushing low pressure toward the Gulf. These two factors combined with the daytime heating will lead to more scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. Some storms could bring strong winds, lightning and periods of heavy rain.
That area of low pressure makes it to the Gulf Wednesday and is projected to strengthen to a tropical depression (maybe even Tropical Storm Barry) as it moves west toward Texas. This will inject tropical moisture into our area as another weak front slides through Thursday. This will help trigger more showers and thunderstorms for us Thursday into Friday before the front stalls out.
Daytime temperatures will stay within a few degrees of the norm and may cool a bit heading into the weekend. Heat indices will reach into the low 100s for the next few days. Nighttime temperatures will run around 2 to 6 degrees above average.
TODAY- Scattered showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon under partly sunny skies. Highs in the mid 90s. Heat indices in the low 100s.
TONIGHT- Scattered showers and thunderstorms then mostly cloudy after midnight. Lows in the mid 70s.
TOMORROW- Scattered showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon under mostly cloudy skies. Highs in the low 90s.
