Tuesday, July 9 Forecast Discussion

A few showers have developed again this afternoon as temperatures have made a run towards the low 90s. We will see showery activity again come to an end after sunset with clouds hanging around a bit overnight. Clouds will be on the increase tomorrow ahead of a cold front, but the front itself won't arrive until Thursday. Ahead of the front, a storm complex may race southward and be able to impact counties north of I-20 by evening. These storms could be strong to severe with gusty winds and hail, as well as some heavy rainfall.

More storms are possible on Thursday as the cold front arrives and then works through the area. Rain will come to an end for the most part once the front passes, but even locations north of the front on Friday may see a few showers develop. Rain will still be possible through the weekend as another upper level low swings over top, but this one is a quick mover and should only touch off a shower or two. Starting next week, high pressure builds in and should limit rain chances, although the track of Chantal will be a factor as most models have Chantal coming ashore by Monday and then heading our direction, meaning we could get some rain from the remnants of Chantal.

Temperatures will remain near 90 through the next 7 days and humidity will stay up until Friday when some slightly cooler and drier air arrives from the north.
