MONDAY: After a stormy Sunday afternoon in spots; expect a slightly quieter day across the region as a weak boundary shifts away from the state. Expect a mix of clouds and sun with highs in the creeping toward the lower and middle 90s; feeling closer to 105-110. A few storms will be possible by the afternoon hours, mainly near and south of I-20. Those storms will tend to fade after sunset with lows in the 70s.
TUESDAY: Sunshine looks to win out for most of the day as a weak front pushes closer to the area – out ahead of it, expect highs into the middle 90s – feeling like the lower 100s with a hit or miss chance for a cooling storm. The front will shift farther south overnight, bringing in a brief push of drier air through mid-week. Lows will fall to the lower 70s.
EXTENDED FORECAST: In the wake of our weak boundary – expect a push of lowered humidity through mid-week, before a surge of tropical moisture returns by week’s end. Expect highs in the lower 90s through Thursday with mostly sunny skies, turning partly sunny Friday as a surge of moisture lifts toward the area. By the weekend, better chance for showers and storms will emerge amid the surge of tropical moisture over the Gulf States. We’ll be keeping an eye on the potential for formal tropical development in the western Gulf of Mexico, but with most weaker systems, they tend to be more lopsided with rain and storms on their eastern periphery – something to note as we head deeper into this week.
