Expect partly to mostly cloudy skies with high temperatures in the mid 80s to low 90s on Thursday. Scattered showers and storms a re possible across North and Central Texas as a weak low remains over our western counties. The main hazards with any thunderstorms that do develop tomorrow are lightning and heavy downpours.
Tropical Depression Harvey continues to develop near the Yucatan Peninsula and Bay Of Campeche. Harvey is expected to strengthen into a tropical storm by Thursday morning and possibly a hurricane just before landfall some where on the Coastal Bend Friday Night or Saturday Morning. The eventual track and intensity remains uncertain due to slow steering currents and an upper level high expected across the Southern Rockies and High Plains. At this time, it appears it will meander across South-Central and Southeast Texas this weekend, where very heavy to torrential rainfall will occur and produce possible widespread flooding. The heaviest rainfall at this time is expected to remain just south of our area, but will be monitored closely through the end of the week. Continue to closely monitor forecasts over the coming days, especially those across South-Central and Southeast Texas for changes in track and rainfall amounts.
