Still chasing that first 100° day until an early August cold front swings through

Updated: 4 hours ago

It looked like Monday would have been the first 100° day of the year for many cities and towns but nearly everyone missed the century mark. Going through the remainder of the month, the only opportunities for triple-digit temperatures looks to be Friday and Saturday since a weak disturbance will bring us extra clouds and maybe some rain today and tomorrow. We’re starting out noticeably warmer this morning in the low-to-mid 70s with mostly clear to partly cloudy skies but we’re expecting a few showers to bubble up in the heat of the day too, especially east of I-35. We should stay precipitation free through the early afternoon with mostly clear skies early this morning turning partly cloudy late this morning. Midday temperatures in the upper 80s and low 90s should warm into the mid-to-upper 90s for highs. Rain chances are near 20% area wide but are closer to 30% near I-45 as a disturbance from the east tries to move in. Whatever rain that forms should mostly end shortly after sunset, but there’s a chance rain may linger through around midnight for some with another low chance of some scattered rain redeveloping before sunrise Wednesday morning. Whatever rain that may form should be fairly fleeting but localized downpours are possible, especially near I-45. Rain chances climb to 30% Wednesday afternoon as today’s disturbance potentially kicks up some more scattered rain. With slightly higher rain chances Wednesday and potentially some more clouds, highs should be slightly cooler than normal as we only warm into the low-to-mid 90s. Be aware though that heat index values both today and tomorrow may climb as high as 105°!
