The ground is just aching for a drink of water, and it looks like Father’s Day weekend may deliver the best chance of rain that we’ve seen in months.

Thursday: Isolated showers

While Wednesday brought a few brief showers to the region, expect Thursday to bring slightly greater coverage of rain. The shower activity will still be isolated, but a few lucky folks will get a decent downpour before the day is up.

Everyone else will see partly cloudy skies with high temperatures reaching the low 90s.

Friday: Similar to Thursday

Friday will have very similar conditions to Thursday with a high in the low 90s. Isolated showers will still meander throughout the area, but rainfall totals will be fairly insignificant. The real rain starts arriving over the weekend.

Father’s Day weekend: Scattered showers, especially Sunday

The surge of tropical moisture in the Gulf of Mexico is still on track to move into South Texas over the weekend. Saturday looks to remain a little drier than Sunday as a large chunk of the moisture arrives Sunday. Scattered showers will bring some heavy downpours to our area on Father’s Day. You may see your outdoor Father’s Day plans get wet, but hopefully that comes with a good drink of water for our parched ground.

There is a chance that some of this rain could be very heavy, which could cause some problems if it falls too quickly in one place. Stay tuned to Action 10 News over the coming days as the forecast evolves.
