Tuesday, June 24 Forecast Discussion

Rain showers and a couple of storms have worked through the area this morning and afternoon. Rain will also linger into the overnight for some locations, especially those south of Interstate 20. More rain looks to develop Wednesday as a weak boundary slides southward through the area. At this point, it looks like the greatest coverage will be for locations south of Interstate 20. Rain returns in greater coverage for the entire area Thursday as the last piece of an upper level low lifts to the north ahead of an advancing ridge of high pressure.

Friday will be a transition day between the rainy and gloomy weather and sunny and warmer weather. High pressure will start to lift northward, but there will be enough lift in place to allow isolated showers and storms through the day. Rain chances don't drop off to pop-up variety until Saturday when high pressure starts to reassert its grip across the area.

With high pressure returning, temperatures return to the 90s and look to reach our warmest readings of the year by Tuesday when we could be looking at reaching 95 for the first time in over a year. With the warmer weather, there will still be plenty of moisture left in place, so a pop-up storm is possible, but humidity values this weekend may force our heat index near or above 100 degrees.
