The dry stretch of weather over the past days will come to an end today. High pressure to our north has moved off the East Coast which will give us a southeast and then southerly breeze over the next few days. That wind will bring in more moisture which will mean an increase in cloud cover throughout today and a chance of isolated afternoon showers today, mainly south of I-20. The chance of rain will increase Thursday through Saturday as a disturbance comes out of the northwestern Gulf of Mexico ranging from 50-70%. That additional lift in the atmosphere will increase our chances of rain statewide primarily during the afternoon hours. There may be a few stronger storms late this week and into the weekend with lightning, thunder, strong winds and heavy rain, but most storms will stay below severe weather limits. By the time the Fourth of July holiday rolls around we’ll be in a typical summertime weather pattern. Lows will be in the 70s and highs will be near 90 with high humidity, partly sunny skies and stray afternoon showers/storms which will dissipate after sunset. after sunset.
