Yet another day with rain in Central Texas - we’ve now see more days in the month of July with rain than without! That will even out a bit more this week with the water works shutting off, for now. After the rain clears the area today, we will see lots of quiet weather days this week with our days full of sunshine, humidity, heat.... definitely more of what we are used to for this time of the year.

The moisture levels will stay high and that will lead to daily “feels like” temperatures in the upper 90s/low 100s each afternoon this week. Highs will be more seasonable, in the low to mid 90s. There will be some coastal showers and storms each afternoon, but those won’t likely make it far enough north to impact us most days. That said, Friday looks to have the best potential for a few showers and storms in the southeastern portion of the area - in the afternoons as the sea breeze kicks up some storms.

We also have a plume of Saharan dust streaming in this week and that keep the sky hazy and reduce air quality levels into the moderate range this week. We aren’t the only ones affected by the dust this week, In fact, throughout the state there will be several air quality levels impacted and could potentially cause some issues for those with sensitive respiratory systems.

We will spend most of the week in between two areas of high pressure, which again, results in mainly quiet, sunny, and hot days through the weekend. We may however have some rain chances and another cold front going into next week. As you may know, things could change between now and then, but we will be tracking the potential changes to our weather set up throughout the week.
