Wednesday, May 29 Forecast Discussion

Some daytime storms have developed mostly south of I-20 this afternoon, and this is a trend we will see for more of us through the rest of the week. The storms that are out there will dissipate quickly after sunset, making locations that saw ran very humid with some patchy fog, other warm and muggy for all of us.

More storms arrive tomorrow as the storms will get some support from the jet stream to allow more to fire. At this time, it does not appear any should make it to strong or severe status. Rain chances decrease Friday and Saturday as high pressure exerts a little more control over the area before all of us see rain on Sunday with our next cold front. Storms do not look to be severe as they will lack upper level support, but a weak squall line may be able to develop along the front.

Once the front and linger rain clear out Monday, temperatures return back toward 90 degrees as we welcome in the first week of June. Humidity will drop as we work into the start of next week.

Of note in the tropics, Hurricane Barbara has intensified in the Eastern Pacific and is forecast to make landfall overnight in Mexico. The forecast track takes Barbara into the southern Gulf, but it appears the cold front that arrives here on Sunday will take any lingering moisture and what is left of the center and send it toward Florida as just extra rain.
