Temperatures will still be hot on Wednesday with highs in the upper 90s, but the heat index will be near or just below the 108-degree threshold to trigger a Heat Advisory. It will be another mostly sunny and entirely dry day. Any outdoor activity should be done before 11 a.m. or after 8 p.m. if possible to avoid the peak temperature and heat index.
By Thursday, deeper moisture currently over Louisiana will start pushing into southeast Texas. This will bring back some cloud cover to help provide a little shade, and it now looks like isolated showers could pop up east of I-45. Then on Friday, the deepest moisture will arrive along with an upper air disturbance, bringing back a 30% chance for those cooling afternoon downpours we look forward to in the summertime.
Now we don't want to get your hopes up too much as it's only a 30% chance you'll get a shower or thunderstorm, but it'll be nice to see a little color on the radar. Rain chances drop back down to 20% for the weekend as the atmosphere dries out a bit, but a more typical summertime pattern looks to develop after the weekend with a 30% chance for a daily downpour. We are seeing some signs that perhaps rain chances could go up a little more for one or two days next week.
