A few showers or t-storms are possible late Wednesday night as a line of storms moving east from Brush Country moves in. This line will likely fall apart as it runs into more stable air closer to the coast and most areas will stay dry. Our better chance of rain comes this weekend as an upper level low tracks across south Texas. A line of showers and storms is expected to move in Friday night through Saturday morning with more possible later in the day Saturday and again Sunday. Rainfall amounts are projected to be anywhere from a half inch to 2 inches in south Texas through Sunday. There continues to be a chance of rain Monday and Tuesday but the chance decreases as the low pressure area moves to the east.

Tonight: Slight shower or t-storm chance with lows in the mid to upper 70s and southeast winds at 10-18 mph.

Thursday: Spot shower chance and partly sunny with highs in the low 90s inland to low 80s beaches and southeast winds at 15-22 mph. Heat indices will reach the upper 90s to near 100.

Friday: Partly sunny, very warm and humid with highs in the low 90s inland to low 80s coast and southeast winds at 15-25 mph.

Friday Night: Increasing chance of showers and t-storms with lows in the mid to upper 70s.

Saturday: Showers and t-storms likely with high temperatures in the low to mid 80s and southeast winds at 12-22 mph.

Sunday: Scattered showers and storms with highs in the low to mid 80s.
