Daily storms, heat, and humidity are expected to continue. Storms will be most likely during the afternoon with some producing heavy rain and lots of lightning. Highs will top out near 90 degrees in the early afternoon.
The area of disturbed weather over the Western Caribbean will move into the Gulf of Mexico by the weekend. Right now the chances for development are low. Deep tropical moisture will likely move toward Texas over the weekend and will likely increase our rain chances as well.
As a result, waves of potentially heavy rain will be possible on Sunday. Have a backup plan for outdoor Father's Day celebrations. We could see some ponding and street flooding.
Drier air will move back in next week leaving us with lower rain chances and higher temperatures.
