High heat & high humidity ahead of a pattern change (& some relief) Sunday
We continue our ‘rinse and repeat’ weather pattern with high pressure still in control. We keep mornings in the mid 70s and afternoon highs in the mid 90s. The dreaded heat index values climb each afternoon to around 100-107 degrees tomorrow. Hydration and listening to your body is key as we battle this heat through the start of the weekend. Saturday afternoon will feel around 100 degrees for heat index values, so still hot but trending “cooler”.
We are glad to see a pattern change on approach - we don’t get those often in the summer once high pressure settles in. With a dip in the jet stream, it looks to be just enough to try to swing another cold front into our area Monday -- that’s the second front in 10 days! Ahead of the front, high temperatures on Sunday will be a bit lower in the low-to-mid 90s due to the extra clouds around & “feels like” temperatures will be in the upper 90s vs feeling over 100 degrees... Slim rain chance on Sunday but most of the rain will be to our north closer to where the front will be.
The front looks to stall out somewhere across Central Texas giving us scattered showers and storm chances Monday and Tuesday. More clouds than sun can be expected next week, which will help keep temperatures in the upper 80s and low-90s, which is a nice change to the way we end this week. We do not currently expect any significantly cooler weather from this system, but every little bit helps and it’ll be nice if we can get some rain in before we head into July.
