Scattered Storms Continue

From Brian Germ:

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue Saturday afternoon and early evening, with about 30% coverage around Central Texas. Showers will diminish shortly after sunset due to the loss of daytime heating. A stray shower may be possible Saturday night, but most areas will see partly cloudy to mostly clear skies and seasonal temperatures. Lows will fall into the lower and middle 70s. Winds will be out of the east southeast at 5 to 10 mph.

Moisture from the Gulf of Mexico and an upper-level low pressure system will continue to push over portions of Central Texas on Sunday. Rain and storm chances will remain around 30% through the afternoon and early evening hours. Highs for Sunday afternoon will be similar to Saturday, with temperatures reaching the upper 80s and lower 90s under a mixture of sun and clouds. Winds will be out of the east northeast at 5 to 15 mph.

The upper-level ridge is expected to remain over the Southeast United States heading into early next week, which will continue to allow moisture to feed across parts of Central Texas. Afternoon and early evening showers and thunderstorms will be possible again Monday afternoon, with a little increase in coverage by Tuesday as an upper-level low moves into Southeast Texas. The best coverage for showers and storms each day will be over our southern counties, but all areas will see some isolated to scattered activity. Highs will remain in the upper 80s and lower 90s across much of Central Texas.

Afternoon and early evening storm chances continue into Wednesday, with less coverage expected by Thursday and into Friday. The beginning of the Labor Day weekend may have a few isolated afternoon showers, but most areas are likely to stay dry. Highs will slowly increase by the end of the work week and into the holiday weekend, with temperatures in the lower and middle 90s under partly to mostly sunny skies.

A tropical disturbance near South Florida will move into the Gulf of Mexico by early next week, but poses no threat to Central Texas at this time. We'll continue to monitor the system over the next several days.
