The heat backs off some this weekend as a weak disturbance moves in along the Texas coast. This will bring in additional clouds, higher humidity, rain chances and slightly cooler temperatures. 


What You Need To Know

  • Scattered showers and storms will move inland through Sunday

  • Some of the showers could contains brief heavy downpours and gusty winds

  • North Texas will remain dry but temperatures will drop to near 100 degrees

Scattered rain and storms are likely across the mid to upper Texas coast on Friday night through Saturday and then moving inland towards the I-35 corridor Saturday and into Sunday. Rain totals will be around 1"- 2" near Victoria, Houston and Beaumont, around .25" - .50" east of Austin and San Antonio and then a trace to .10" along and west of I-35. 

Temperatures will be closer to our normal August high of 99 degrees in Central Texas. Enjoy!

 

Hottest of summer ahead?

We are just days away from the hottest time of year for much of Texas. For cities along the I-35 corridor, the first two weeks of August is statistically the peak of summer and August is historically the hottest month of the year. That means the worst of summer might still be coming. On that note, NOAA just updated its August forecast and, no surprise, it calls for warmer than normal and drier than normal conditions to continue.
