TODAY: Highs this afternoon will be slightly warmer, topping out in the mid to upper 90’s, but it will certainly feel differently outdoors. Gulf moisture returns, bringing the heat indexes up near or at the triple digit mark this afternoon.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy and muggy with lows in the low to mid 70’s.
LATER THIS WEEK: Area's east of I-35 could see scattered showers and storm activity starting tomorrow afternoon thanks to the weak low pressure system out in the Gulf, that will continue to move closer to the southern coast today. With many models having this system taking more of an eastward track, it looks like our eastern zones will be the areas where we can see the best chance for showers Saturday as well. Rainfall totals aren’t impressive but should provide slight relief to the current dry conditions. We go back to our hot and rain-free weather pattern by the end of the weekend and into the Fourth of July holiday. High pressure will send temperatures soaring back to the upper 90’s, with heat indexes having it feel like we’re at the century mark through mid-week.
