Rain, Rain, Go Away before Independence Day

VICTORIA, TX — Hot days and mild, humid nights continue for the Crossroads. A chance of rain showers and thunderstorms is also possible practically every day this week, except for some heavier rain in our forecast. The isolated rain chances continue through Monday night, however, things change come Tuesday.

On Tuesday, we begin to feel the effects of a Tropical Wave’s moisture. The actual Tropical Wave itself will have moved in on Monday, however, the moisture and precipitation with these systems almost always follows behind the center. This is the case with this system. Tuesday and Wednesday will be cooler with highs in the upper 80s, however it will be very humid and overcast. Don’t forget your rain gear going out the door those days, as the rain chances will be around 60%.

What about Independence Day? As of right now, we are looking at highs in the low 90s. There is a rain chance, 40%, but I expect this to be more of an afternoon affair. That being said, an isolated shower cannot be ruled out as we approach the time of fireworks displays, but I expect it to be pretty clear by then.

Friday and next Saturday appear to be the only days rain free this forecast period for now, so definitely plan to take advantage of that and get outside.
