Wednesday, July 17 Forecast Discussion

Just a few clouds out there for most of us by this point in our afternoon. Heat indices are in the mid to upper 90s as the humid weather persists. While we haven't seen much in the way of rain so far, there is still time for a storm or two to fire, and that remains possible through the evening.

Rain chances will be a little better starting tomorrow and lasting to the start of next week as our ridge of high pressure that has keep things nice and quiet for us begins to break down and allow an upper level low in the northern Gulf to move inland. This added lift and moisture will make storms more possible into the weekend, when a cold front will stall to our north which could send a few thunderstorm complexes our direction.

Next week gets a little more tricky as of right now two options look possible. One is that high pressure builds back in, increases temperatures, and decreases rain chances. The other is that an upper level trough remains near us causing rain chances to remain normal to just a little higher than average. I am thinking right now that high pressure builds in, so I am increasing highs as we move through the middle of next week and dropping rain chances. Either way, our typical July pattern continues.
