The sunny skies will give way for mostly cloudy skies and afternoon showers and storms for much of the week. Clouds will continue to flow in from the west ahead of an upper level low, that will bring us these storms. The upper level low is slowly trekking to the east across Texas and this will keep rain chances in the forecast for much of the week. With afternoon convection and added lift from the low, storms will fire up during the day. Throughout the evening hours as daytime heating is slowly lost, any organized storms will lose their instability and become rain showers before fizzling out.

For today, with the added cloud coverage and slight chances of rain, temperatures will only be in the upper 80s. Lows overnight for much of the week will stay in the mid to upper 60s, thanks to cloud coverage holding the temperatures closer to the surface. The best chance for any rain comes Wednesday into Thursday as the upper level low will be nearing us and providing even more lift.

Rain chances slowly begin to taper off towards the end of the weekend as the low dissipates to our west. Right now, models are hinting at a strong area of high pressure building in, where we could see temperatures rival what we saw late last week. Temperatures could even be warmer, but for now going to hold off on raising those temperatures due to the slight chance that we could still see some rain. Any rain we do see would knock those temperatures down a few degrees so only going with the upper 80s and a few locations seeing 90 by the start of next week.
