Little change from yesterday in terms of what can be expected weather-wise today. A stray shower or storm is as good as it gets, but temperatures are a touch warmer and muggier. Looking at the 24 hour temperature change map, you can see we are warmer than 11 am yesterday. High pressure will continue shifting east, pulling in warmer and muggier conditions.
A cold front is also slowly on the way. This will arrive early next week, bringing widespread showers and storms Monday and early Tuesday. Leading up, the warm and muggy conditions will lead to a stray shower/storm today and tomorrow, before becoming scattered on Sunday. A few storms through early next week could be strong, with heavy downpours and gusty winds the main threat. We are still in need of rain across the area, so we will welcome the activity on Monday.
Looking towards the end of the month, a shift back to above average temperatures and near to slightly below average rainfall looks to find us. The end of July will generally be similar to today, where temperatures peak in the low 90s and afternoon pop up showers and storms will be possible each day.
Overall, the weekend will be fairly quiet but warm to start. Sunday will give way to better shower and storm chances, followed by the best opportunity on Monday. Cooler temperatures (mid to upper 80s) will be present, before warming and drying back out towards mid week. Have a good weekend, and don't forget to give us a follow @SecretCityWx
