From Sean Bellafiore:
Although the cold front that brought cooler weather and copious amounts of rain to Central Texas over the weekend is gone, scattered rain is remaining in the forecast. Rain chances are coming to an end this week, however, and temperatures will begin to increase. Scattered rain Monday afternoon will continue through 10 PM this evening across our area with some pockets of heavy rain possible through sunset. Once rain ends, overnight temperatures fall into the lower 70s with increasing clouds by morning.
Much like Monday, Tuesday's rain will be scattered about Central Texas providing some areas with rain and keeping other areas dry. The highest rain chances will be near and south of Highway 84, however rain will be possible anywhere across the area. High temperatures creep back into the upper 80s and lower 90s with a mix of sunshine and cloud cover.
A weak mid-level disturbance will move into South Texas Wednesday, far enough away to keep rain chances low but close enough that a few scattered showers may form during the afternoon near and east of I-35. Rain chances Wednesday will be lower than the previous days, near 20%. Scattered clouds remain in the forecast Wednesday with high temperatures in the lower to middle 90s. Heat index values may climb into the middle and upper 90s.
Outside of a pop-up shower during peak heating Thursday and Friday, rain will take a reprieve from Central Texas. High temperatures Thursday and Friday climb into the middle 90s with heat index values near 100°. Temperatures continue to rise into the middle and upper 90s for the upcoming weekend and early next week with heat index values between 100° and 104°. Some long-range forecast model data is hinting at the possibility of rain late this weekend into the July 4th holiday, however rain doesn't seem likely at the current time. Right now, July 4th will likely have temperatures in the upper 90s with nearly no rain.
