Above Average Temperatures With Increased Rain Chances Today
Rain coverage will increase across our area today, mainly during the afternoon and early evening hours. Winds will turn from the north to out of the south and help to advect in an increase in moisture from the Gulf of Mexico. Also an old frontal boundary will also lift to the north and aid in thunderstorm and rain shower development. Can’t rule out a strong storm or two with higher instability present over the region today. Unfortunately, the heat will continue with highs in the low to middle 90s again today. Heat index values will top out around 102 in the afternoon. As always, during this time of year drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated.
