Isolated Shower This Afternoon
Tuesday, July 7th, 2015
DISTURBANCE TO OUR WEST
A disturbance to our north and west is causing a few showers this morning along the Panhandle and Edwards Plateau. Most of the action will stay in that direction but this afternoon we may get a few of these storms to break away and move into our Hill Country. I'm going to put about a 20-30% rain chance today in the Hill Country with about a 10-20% chance to move in along the I-35 corridor. I wouldn't say that this is an umbrella day but be on the lookout for a few isolated showers on your way home from work.
The cloud cover and constant SE breeze has kept our summer temperatures SUPER lenient this year. Our hottest temp so far is 95 -- which as many of you know, is not bad at all! We'll keep temperatures in the low 90s for the next few days as clouds and a 10-20 mph SE breeze hangs around. I do think we warm up just a touch towards the end of the weekend. I've got us around 94 on Sunday and 96 on Monday. That would be the hottest this year. The last time we hit 96 was September 12th. Curious about triple digits? I know, I shouldn't have even mentioned it. Well I just want to keep you in the loop. We could possibly see some upper 90s and low 100s in the Hill Country next week. For ATX, our average first 100-degree day is July 10th and we average 4 in the month of July. There have been 13 years with no 100-degree temps since record have been kept dating back to 1897, the most recent was 1987.
It's been quiet since Tropical Storm Bill came ashore in Texas last month - but now a new disturbance is showing signs of possible tropical development. That system is in the Pacific and would not have any impact on weather here in the Lone Star State, but there's a 70% chance of tropical development for what's being called "Invest 96" now that will likely become Tropical Storm Dolores. That storm bears watching for Hawaii as some tracks push it near the Islands. Once Dolores forms, you can track the storm with our KEYE-TV Tropics Tracker. http://bit.ly/keyeTropics
