From Brian Germ:
The heat is continuing to build in across Central Texas, and afternoon highs today are expected to be slightly warmer in the low to mid 90s under partly sunny skies. South southeast winds will be light at 5 to 10 MPH. A few isolated to scattered showers and storms will be possible by the late afternoon and early evening hours with rain chances at 20% to 30%. A few stronger storms with gusty winds and small hail may occur.
After an initial chance for some showers and storms, expect mainly quiet conditions for the late evening hours. However, another cluster of showers and storms may drift through parts of Central Texas overnight and into early Saturday morning. Rain and storm chances should be around 20% to 30% with a few stronger storms possible. Otherwise, expect partly cloudy skies and temperatures only dropping into the lower 70s.
Conditions for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend are expected to be more of the same, however afternoon temperatures should be even warmer! Highs over the extended weekend are expected to be in the mid to possibly upper 90s! There could be a few showers and thunderstorms Saturday afternoon, but the coverage is expected to be limited to around 20%.
Even hotter temperatures may be in store for Central Texas by the middle part of next week. Highs could be topping out in the upper 90s and close to 100° for a few spots! Make sure to stay hydrated and limit time outdoors when possible!
