Tuesday, August 12 Forecast Discussion

Our cold front that initiated showers and storms yesterday is continuing to slowly exit the area. As it does, we could still see a pop-up shower this evening, but they will be very few and far between. As cooler and drier air arrives, skies will clear overnight, allowing lows to dip into the middle 60s.

Under ample sunshine the next few days thanks to high pressure in the Midwest, temperatures will hold in the upper 80s with a few locations south of Interstate 20 possibly reaching 90. We all return to the lower 90s by Friday as warmer air starts to arrive. Humidity will also start to creep back up, but will not be unbearable as we start the weekend.

The August sauna returns in full force by Sunday as highs make it to the middle 90s with high humidity. As humidity and temperatures increase, coupled with high pressure losing its influence, we could see pop-up to isolated thunderstorms each afternoon starting on Sunday. Rain chances will then remain in the forecast into the middle of next week.
