The rest of the week will be very warm with rising humidity and windy afternoons with partly sunny skies. There is a spot shower chance early Wednesday and again Thursday but overall, it will stay dry. An upper level wave will move into south Texas Friday night and slowly move to our north through Sunday. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are looking likely from late Friday night into Saturday with a few more Sunday. One of our medium range forecast models shows this low stalling over south Texas through next Tuesday. If this happens, we'll see scattered thundershowers next Monday and Tuesday. As of now, the best chance of rain is from Friday night through Saturday afternoon with projected rainfall amounts through Sunday from near a half inch at the coast to two inches in our northwestern counties.
