WEATHER BLOG: Changes to the weather forecast through the weekend and next week

Local

In the near-term, expect a continuation of hot and dry conditions as readings are expected to be near 90 degrees again tomorrow. Rain chances remaining low for your day tomorrow as dry air still remains over the area, with the moist air still across Texas. 

This will be changing heading through Thursday. The trough of low pressure that’s been consistent over the lower-plains will slowly move eastward as a ridge of high pressure breaks down over the southeastern U.S. This will lead to increasing moisture across the area as well as a weak frontal boundary that will slip down from the north. This will create an uptick in daily storm chances Thursday through Saturday, with rain coverage in the 30-40% range. 

Highs during those days will be in the lower 90s, so with increasing humidity, feels like temperatures will easily be in the 95-100 degree range. 

Thereafter, the trough will lift out and a strong ridge of high pressure will build overtop the region. This ridge looks dominant and could lead to some of the hottest temperatures we’ve seen thus far this year. Highs could be in the 93-95 degree range Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday–with heat indices exceeding 100 degrees.
