Typical weather for the last half of May will continue into the weekend as temperatures remain warm, reaching the mid to upper 80s and humidity stays high. There is only a  slight chance of t-storms late in the day Saturday and Saturday evening but most of the activity will stay north. Any storms that do develop could be strong or severe.  After a slight storm chance again Tuesday, we’ll stay dry but hot for the rest of the week as a ridge of high pressure aloft builds over east Texas, sending daytime highs to 90 degrees with muggy nights in the mid to upper 70s.

Tonight: Lows will drop into the mid 70s with partly cloudy skies and patchy fog as southeast winds stay under 12 mph.

Friday: Temperatures will warm into the mid to upper 80s in the afternoon with areas well inland reaching 90 degrees. It will be breezy with southeast winds at 13-20 mph, gusting up to 30 mph. The humidity will give us heat indices in the low to mid 90s in the afternoon.

Saturday: Highs will reach the mid to upper 80s under partly to mostly cloudy skies as southeast winds increase to 20 mph, gusting up to 35 mph at times.  There is a chance of spotty storms in the late afternoon and evening.

Sunday: Clouds will break up to a partly cloudy afternoon with high temperatures reaching into the upper 80s to near 90. The humidity will make it feel like the mid to upper 90s in the afternoon and winds will come in from the southeast up to 20 mph.
