A few isolated showers and storms have been popping in portions of the viewing area this afternoon, although most of the activity has remained to our southwest. Any rain will fall apart after sunset with partly cloudy skies through the night and into our Saturday.
Outside of pop-up storms, we will be dry through the weekend as highs return to the lower and middle 90s. Heat indices will push 100 degrees in some locations both days.
Monday will be a day of transition as an area of high pressure will weaken over head, allowing a trough to dig in through the Great Lakes region. This trough will dig as far south as about Interstate 20, bringing with it extremely cool air for this time of year. Highs through the latter part of next week will be in the lower to middle 80s!
The two best chances for rain at this point are Tuesday and Thursday of next week. Tuesday will see the cold front that brings all the cool air work through the area while Thursday will see a system swing in from the northwest. Isolated showers and storms will be possible for the entirety of next week.
