Wednesday, June 19th Forecast Discussion

Just about all of us stayed dry today as the front that sparked off the showers and storms yesterday continued to sag South toward the Highway 84 Corridor. With that said, we still saw a couple of isolated, heavy downpours South of I-20 this afternoon. Those are fading this evening, and everyone should be dry by the time the sun goes down around 8:00. Tomorrow looks like the day with the smallest chance of afternoon showers, as the front will be well to our South and some upper ridging will try to take hold. However, we can never really rule out the chance for an afternoon shower or two during the summertime, but I do think the vast majority of us will stay dry and hot tomorrow, as highs look to climb into the low 90s. For the weekend, a piece of energy associated with an upper trough will move through, and that will aid in a few afternoon showers and storms for Friday through Sunday. Ridging will once again take over by the beginning of the workweek, and rain chances aren't mentionable for that time period right now. Highs will stay in the low 90s, with lows mainly in the low 70s...very typical for this time of year. In weather news that (thankfully) does not apply to us...our second named tropical system formed today. Tropical Storm Barry is in the Bay of Campeche with maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour. It will continue moving to the West into Central America over the next few days. Summer officially begins this Friday, June 21st.
