Trey's Forecast Discussion For Thursday August 10th

Posted: Updated:

TODAY: PARTLY CLOUDY WITH SCATTERED RAIN SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS. HOT. HIGH: 95. WINDS: SE 10 MPH. RAIN CHANCE 40%.

TONIGHT: PARTLY CLOUDY AND HUMID. LOW: 77. WINDS: S 5 - 10 MPH. 

FRIDAY: PARTLY CLOUDY AND HOT. ISOLATED RAIN SHOWERS. HIGH: 98. WINDS: SE 10 MPH. RAIN CHANCE 20%.

EXTENDED FORECAST: SATURDAY THRU WEDNESDAY: MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES AND HOT. HIGHS UPPER 90'S. 105 TO 110 HEAT INDEX. LOWS UPPER 70'S. 

SYNOPSIS: OUT MOISTURE FROM HURRICANE FRANKLIN WILL MOVE INTO SOUTH TEXAS TODAY, GIVING US SLIGHTLY BETTER RAIN CHANCES TODAY. A FEW RAIN SHOWERS ARE POSSIBLE ON FRIDAY, BUT COVERAGES WILL BE LESS THAN TODAY. HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS OVER THE AREA, DRYING US OUT AND BRINGING BACK THE INTENSE DAYTIME HEAT. HIGHS UPPER 90'S WITH HEAT INDEX VALUES 105 TO 110 EACH AFTERNOON INTO NEXT WEEK.

TROPICS: HURRICANE FRANKLIN IS NOW INLAND OVER SOUTHERN MEXICO NEAR VERACRUZ. ELSEWHERE, A TROPICAL WAVE EAST OF THE LESSER ANTILLIES REMAINS WEAK, BUT HAS SOME POTENTIAL FOR DEVELOPMENT AS IT MOVES THROUGH THE CENTRAL ATLANTIC OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS. 

DANGEROUS RIP CURRENTS AND SOME MINOR COASTAL FLOODING ALONG GULF FACING BEACHES CAN BE EXPECTED TODAY, AS SOME OF THE OUTER WAVES FROM FRANKLIN MAKE THEIR WAY TOWARD THE TEXAS COAST.
