Nicondra: Passing storms through the weekend

(WVUE) - Stormy periods and near 90 degree temperatures remain the rule as we get ready to celebrate Father's Day. Very high moisture levels stick around through early Sunday and we will begin to see the effects of deep tropical moisture moving across the Gulf of Mexico that we've been tracking since last week.

The area of disturbed weather is moving across the Yucatan Peninsula and will likely continue toward the Texas coast through Sunday. Being just on the edge we will likely increase our rain chances as well. The heaviest rains will stay to our west. High wind shear should prevent more organized development.

As a result, expect above normal storm chances to last into Sunday.

Storm coverage should decrease some at the beginning of next week with even drier weather by the end of it.
