Dry through the weekend, possible rain next week

Posted at 6:24 PM, Jul 17, 2019

There won't be much change in our weather the next few days as the weather pattern remains stable with high pressure aloft in control. Hot, sticky days will continue but we may see slightly drier air inching it's way in from the west, dropping dew points in our inland areas by Saturday. It will still be hot but not quite as humid with heat indices staying under 106 Saturday. Winds will continue to come in from the southeast at 15-23 mph, gusting to 30 mph Thursday and Friday but will relax this weekend with less wind Sunday. Heading into next week, a wave of low pressure aloft is expected to move in from the east Monday which could cause a few showers to develop. Also, a weak frontal boundary could drop into central Texas next Tuesday and Wednesday, giving us a chance of showers. At this time the chance of rain is low but something we'll watch and update as we get closer.

Wednesday Night: Partly cloudy with lows in the upper 70s inland to 80 at the beaches and southeast winds at 10-15 mph.

Thursday: Morning clouds clearing to mostly sunny skies and highs in the upper 80s at the beaches to near 100 inland. Heat indices will reach 105-110 in the afternoon with southeast winds at 15-23 mph, gusting up to 30 mph.
