The daily chance for showers and storms will continue through the end of the work week. A few storms will produce locally heavy rain with lots of lightning. Highs will top out near 90 degrees in the early afternoon.
An area of disturbed weather over the Western Caribbean will move into the Gulf of Mexico later this week. Right now the chances for development are low. The deep tropical moisture will likely move toward Texas over the weekend and may increase our chances for heavy rain too.
Storms may increase as early as Saturday afternoon with waves of rain on Sunday. The greatest impact will be an increased chance for street flooding.
Drier air will move back in next week leaving us with lower rain chances and higher temperatures.
