A little rain this week

After last week’s monster rainfall across the Coastal Bend, we’ve really started to dry out over the weekend.  However with the sunshine breaking through, and with that recent rain, it’s been very humid & hot with heat indices well over 105+ degrees during the afternoon hours.

Thanks to another tropic wave that is pushing towards South Texas and northern Mexico, we’ll begin to see clouds increase into tomorrow morning.  Also we’ll begin to see a few showers and thundershowers as well.  This will carry over into midday with isolated to scattered activity delivering the potential for some heavy downpours.  We’re not looking for anything like we saw last week, but given that the grounds are still very saturated, any little rainfall could lead to some patchy areas of flash flooding.  Average totals will be in the quarter to half inch rainfall category with those isolated higher amounts of 1-1.5 inches.

The tropical wave will push west rather quickly and we’ll see another brief window of some isolated showers early Tuesday, but by Tuesday afternoon high pressure will build back and we’ll be in for some sun and hot temperatures making it really feel like summer for the remainder of the week.  Only a few seabreeze showers will be possible after that along the coast.

So we’ll begin Monday with highs in the upper 80s to low 90s and by Wednesday those highs will push to the middle 90s.  Heat index values will soar passed 100 degrees with some spots achieving closer to 110-115 degrees.  Stay hydrated and take breaks from the heat frequently if you’ll be working outdoors.

Have a great week!
