Your 7 Day Forecast

A sunny and very warm start to our Monday will lead to afternoon temperatures in the middle 90s with a heat index around 105.  Drink plenty of water and try to avoid direct sunlight during the hottest part of the day if you will be doing any type of strenuous activity.

As the afternoon progresses, a few isolated storms will be possible by the afternoon drive time well ahead of a cold front that will not push into the area until early Tuesday.

Look for storm chances to continue increasing late into the evening ahead of the front with the possibility of a wet morning commute early Tuesday.

I don’t expect that Tuesday will be an all day washout, especially since the front should push just south of I-10 by afternoon and evening.

Wednesday look for much less rain as drier air aloft limits the coverage of rain to on a 20% chance of isolated afternoon showers.

Thursday look for rain to begin increasing as an area of low pressure forms along the stalled front keeping the rain chances around for Friday and Saturday.

A tropical wave about 500 miles SW of the Cape Verde islands continues to produce a good bit of convection and it looks like it may become a bit better organized later this week with a chance of tropical development by late-week.  We’ll keep an eye on this, but is no threat to the US at this time.

Have a great Monday!
