      DAILY AFTERNOON RAIN CHANCES

      Keep your umbrella handy. Though I’m not anticipating the rain to get heavy enough for renewed flooding, I do think there’s potential for isolated to scattered storms each afternoon/evening for the next week. And though it’s unlikely, there are a few computer models tracking “Invest 99” in the Tropics toward Texas now. More on that below in the tropics section.

      Rain totals over the next look heaviest over our eastern counties where 1-3” will be possible with up to 1.5” in the I-35 corridor including Austin and generally less than 1” for the Hill Country. Because this rain will likely be spread out over multiple days, the flood threat is low.

      NOT TOO HOT!

      Thursday’s high reach 94. That’s now 13 days of below normal highs stretching back to the 13th! And that trend may continue for another week since I’m forecasting low 90s while the average high is 96 through the 28th and 95 after that.

      LAKE LEVELS

      Lake Travis is still dropping slowly but remains at 100% with Lake Buchanan at 94%. Thursday’s combined storage remained 97%. Check the levels here: http://hydromet.lcra.org/riverreport/report.aspx

      ALLERGY UPDATE

      Both mold and fall elm dropped from high to moderate with ragweed low on Thursday. Get the latest allergy report from Allergy & Asthma Associates here: https://twitter.com/atxpollen

      UV INDEX

      The UV Index for Friday will be 8 of 11 – Very High. Make sure you use sunscreen and sunglasses, especially between 10am and 2pm. Check the UV Index here: https://www.epa.gov/sunsafety/uv-index-1

      AIR QUALITY FORECAST

      The air quality Friday will be good. Check the Air Quality anytime here: https://airnow.gov/index.cfm?action=airnow.local_city&cityid=229

      THE TROPICS REMAIN ACTIVE

      In the Atlantic, Gaston reached hurricane status then weakened to a Tropical Storm and could strengthen again in the open waters. Meanwhile, Invest 99 still has not developed into Hermine. The track bears watching, especially since some computer models are now tracking it into Texas, while most continue tracking the storm toward Florida. Even if it does push into Texas, for now it appears it would be a weak tropical system and would likely not arrive until mid to perhaps late week next week. For now, it does not look like it will bring us significant rain, but that could certainly change. In the Pacific, Lester and future Madeline are pushing through the ocean.
