Storm chances will continue today across portions of North and Central TX. Rain and storms will not be particularly widespread and rain chances are only around 20 to 30 percent. Severe weather is not expected, but gusty winds, heavy rain and cloud to ground lightning strikes will be possible.
Expect moderating temperatures through the latter half of the work week across North and Central TX. Thursday will be breezy with mostly to partly sunny skies. There will be a low chance for rain across East TX, however. The better threat for rain will be on Friday, mainly along the Red River as a front sags southward towards the area.
Hot and humid conditions are expected on Friday as low level moisture streams northward towards North and Central TX. Afternoon high temperatures will climb into the mid to upper 90s for most locations with heat index values climbing into the 102 to 105 degree range.
The best rain chances this week will return late Friday into Saturday as a front stalls along the Red River. A few storms could be on the strong side with gusty winds being the main threat. Most other areas will remain precipitation-free. Check back to the forecast for additional details later in the week!
