While we hoped for a completely dry Fourth of July, it does look like we will have to contend with some scattered showers and storms. As of now, it doesn’t appear that we’re in for a total washout, but you’ll probably have to take a break from the festivities to make way for a few passing showers.

Monday & Tuesday

Monday and Tuesday look to be nice and quiet with mostly sunny skies and highs near 90 degrees. The Saharan dust that left us with very hazy skies over the weekend will gradually move on throughout the start of the week.

Independence Day

The Fourth of July forecast does call for some rain, but it doesn’t look like it will be widespread, nor lasting all day. In fact, the best chance of rain for Texas will be along the upper-Texas coastline and Southeast Texas. Likewise, the northern part of our area has a much better chance of seeing rain compared to our southern counties. However, the exact location of where showers and storms will form cannot be determined. Keep this in mind as you make your plans for America’s 242nd birthday, as you may get a little wet if spending a lot of time outdoors. You might have to take a quick break for the passing shower or storm.

Stay tuned for the latest on this forecast as it becomes better defined over the next two days.

End of the week

It looks like we’ll hang on to the chance for some isolated to scattered showers and storms even for the end of the week.
