Hot days continue but temperatures will be more in the mid and upper 90s than 100s of the last several days. Moisture is in place and the dry line stays in our area this afternoon where storms are expected to develop. These storms will be isolated meaning not every location will get rain, but some areas may pick up a few hundredths to few tenths of an inch. High wind gusts will also be possible. Current radar below:
TONIGHT: The chance for rain diminishes shortly after the sunsets, then partly cloudy with the lows in the upper 60s and 70s again.
INDEPENDENCE DAY WEEKEND: Temperatures will stay in the range of 95 degrees with a partly cloudy sky. A ridge of high pressure pushes across Texas and into the desert southwest, leaving us with a northwest flow aloft. Some storms may move in the area from New Mexico and the northern Panhandle. Chances are low but some storms can't be ruled out.
NEXT WEEK: Models disagree with temperatures as one keeps us in the mid 90s, while the other brings back the triple digit heat. The chance for rain does look to diminish after Sunday.
Have a great Thursday! Matt with the next updated forecast tonight on the News at Nine.
