Back To Work Forecast

Posted: Updated:

June 18


There is a LPS (Low Pressure System) over the Northern Plains. A cold front is stretched South, through the Central Plains. A Warm front is extended East, through the GLR (Great Lakes Region) and parts of New England. There is a secondary LP (Low Pressure) over the Gulf Coast of Texas that is moving SW, further into the Lone Star State.
Elsewhere, a ridge of high pressure will be anchored over most of the Eastern half of the Nation. 

To read our latest Tropical Outlook, follow the link below to the Hurricane Center.

A LPS is moving out of the area and SW, further into Texas. Associated with this storm, we will see a good chance for showers and thunderstorms and gusty winds at times. In the wake of this system, we will see a continued chance for rain. Expect gradually clearing skies and decreasing rain chances during the next day or so. After this system moves out of the area, we will see a ridge of high pressure will build in and provide us with clearing skies, becoming mostly sunny to partly cloudy by Wednesday.

For the rest of the day;
Expect partly to mostly cloudy skies and a continued good chance (50%) for a scattered showers and thunderstorms through the afternoon and well into the evening hours. Half of the viewing area will see some of this rain, today. Because there is not much steering aloft, these storms will not move very fast. However, with the SE wind that we are seeing, there is a little bit of steering to the north. This rain will begin to fizzle out during the evening hours, as daytime heating wraps up. Expect warm and muggy conditions with High Temperatures around 90 and Heat Index values topping out in the upper 70's. Winds will be light to moderate and out of the South and SE, becoming breezy at times.

For the rest of the 7day planner;
Rain chances will last through the beginning of the week before tapering off during the mid-week. As skies clear out and rain chances go down, we will begin to see the temperature rise to the mid to upper 90's with Heat Index values approaching the 105 mark for some areas. The later part of the week and the weekend will bring with it Seasonably Hot Temperatures and Plenty of Sunshine.

TODAY...Expect a good chance (50%) for showers and thunderstorms throughout the day as an area of low pressure moves towards the Texas coast. Highs 87-93. SE wind 5-15mph.

MONDAY NIGHT...Partly to mostly cloudy skies and muggy and a chance (30%) for lingering showers. Lows 69-75. SE wind 2-8mph.
