Windy and humid Wednesday, storm chance returns Friday

Posted at 5:25 PM, Apr 30, 2019

The warm, humid days and muggy nights continue through the weekend with clouds continuing to hang over the region as our onshore flow keeps moisture in place. We’ll stay mainly dry through Thursday with only some morning sprinkles or a light shower possible. As a cold front moves in Friday into Saturday, we’ll have a better chance of a shower or t-storm.

Tonight: Lows will only drop into the mid to upper 70s under cloudy skies and southeast breeze at 15-20 mph. A brief light shower or sprinkles are possible.

Wednesday: It looks mostly cloudy and windy with southeast winds at 20-28, gusting up to 35 mph at times. We’ll have a warm, humid afternoon with highs in the mid to upper 80s inland with beaches near 80.

Extended: Thursday won’t be as windy with gusts under 25 mph but we’ll still have a lot of clouds and humidity. The atmosphere will be more unstable Friday and Saturday, leading to a better chance of a shower or t-storm. Rain will be more likely to our north but we  could see a few showers or t-storms Friday and Saturday as a weak cold front moves in and stalls over south Texas. Sunday looks dry but an upper level wave moving through Monday will bring another chance of showers and t-storms.
