Heating Up and Drying Out
Summer's heat and humidity makes a comeback to southeast Texas. A ridge of high pressure depicted above should block a series of storms emerging out of the central plains. The predominant northwest flow in east Texas sends rainy weather into the Southeast U.S. A few rouge rumbles might make it through, but most should stay dry.
The high pressure ridge sends temperatures back into the low to mid 90s and the added humidity will make it feel like its over 100 degrees so, take it easy out there. This graph shows the "apparent" temperature (taking into account the effect of the added moisture in the air):
Right now, it looks like the pattern could break down in time for...you guessed it, the July 4th celebration. Currently, the day doesn't look like a washout, but its a bit too early to time the arrival of storms that day. best advice is to check back to this blog a little closer to Saturday for updates.
