Tropical moisture on the increase

Posted at 7:38 PM, Aug 10, 2018

With the center of high pressure far removed from South Texas this opens up the tropics and allows increasing tropical moisture to flow into the area with some rain. Such will be the case on Saturday and into Sunday morning with a pocket of Gulf moisture moving over the area. Once the winds increase Sunday afternoon our rainfall potential will go away. It may be a little tricky watching the Perseid meteor showers the next couple of nights with high clouds in the area, especially Saturday night.

Tonight will be warm and sticky with a low of 77 under mainly clear skies.

Saturday expect scattered thundershowers ( a few with locally heavy rain) working slowly inland on the sea breeze during the afternoon very warm and humid with a high of 93.

Saturday night will be warm and steamy with a few coastal showers and a low of 78.

Sunday we will have isolated morning showers then becoming windy with sweltering afternoon heat and a high of 93.

The tropics are quiet except for a small area of disturbed weather in the central Atlantic that only has a low chance of development within the next 5 days.

Enjoy your weekend.
