The weather pattern looks rather quiet for the rest of the week but there is still a spot storm chance Wednesday. We’ll continue to heat up, reaching the upper 80s by Thursday and Friday while dew points climb into the low to mid 70s as we head into the weekend. Our next better chance of storms moves in late Saturday and into early Sunday as another trough of low pressure aloft passes through Texas. We’ll have to watch for possible strong to severe storms Saturday as the air will be very unstable.

Tonight: Low clouds and patchy fog with lows in the upper 60s well inland to the lower 70s near the coast.

Wednesday: There is a slight t-storm chance with high temperatures near 80 at the beaches to the mid to upper 80s inland and east winds up to 20 mph.

Thursday- Friday: Partly to mostly sunny skies and highs in the upper 80s. Winds will shift to the southeast and increase with gusts to near 30 Friday afternoon.

Weekend: Saturday, spotty storms are possible in the afternoon. Storms look more likely overnight and into Sunday morning before ending. High temperatures will reach the upper 80s this weekend with heat indices into the mid to upper 90s due to high humidity. Also, Saturday will be windy with south-southeast winds near 20 mph, gusting up to 35 mph. Sunday’s winds looks lighter, up to 20 mph.
