Stormy weather ending & sticky heat/humidity take over
For many in Central Texas, it’s been a rainy Monday and heavy rain has created flooding hazards along and east of I-35. With rainfall estimates between 1″ and 6″ of rain this afternoon it’s been soggy for our eastern areas. For this evening, localized flooding and swollen creeks will remain a concern, even after the storm activity comes to an end as the night goes on. West of I-35 today it hasn’t been so wet - in fact, the sun has come out in places and that’s helped boost temperatures into the mid and upper 80s for those that have seen the sun.
Another wave in West Texas will have to be watched carefully tonight. A few of these storms may hold on long enough to give us some rain in the morning. A 30% chance for rain and a few more non-severe storms is back in the forecast between 3am and 7am.
After tomorrow’s low-end rain chance, rain is just about done for the week. The main story will be the heat and humidity. With humidity staying high, and daily high temperatures climbing to the low to 90s for the rest of the week, heat index values will be in the upper 90s and even into the triple digits! It’ll be very steamy and it will be important to stay hydrated - especially for those that want to be outside more enjoying the long-awaited drying out period.
