Rainy Monday

A frontal boundary in North-central Texas has pushed an outflow boundary of showers and storms from San Antonio and the Hill Country into East Texas.  This line is continuing to progress southward this evening and will give parts of our viewing area some badly needed rain.  Some of the storms have a history of producing heavy downpours, pea to marble size hail and dangerous lightning.  Northern counties will encounter the line first and then coastal and southern counties later tonight.  Should add that as these storms move south, they will begin to lose some intensity.  Rainfall amounts will also vary widely from a trace to some getting close to an inch or more under the heavier and stronger storms.

Chance of rain carries into Monday afternoon, especially with daytime heating temperatures in the upper 80s to low 90s once again.  Then high pressure will nudge back over us beginning on Tuesday and through the rest of the week and effectively squashes our rain chances, but promotes the heat and sunshine.  Expect afternoon highs to bounce back into the low to mid-90s by Thursday and into next weekend.

Have a great week!
