Relentless Heat, Humidity Dominate Crossroads Weather Pattern This Afternoon

Only Brief Coastal Showers Appeared

Upper level high pressure remains in control over the Lone Star State late today, precluding the chance for any meaningful rainfall in the Crossroads. Extreme heat and humidity have been the rule rather than the exception this summer, and today is no different. Air temperatures range from the upper 80s along the immediate coastline to near 100 in the western counties, with heat indices universally above 105 degrees. Expect showers and thunderstorms to be isolated on Saturday, then scattered on Sunday before ending Monday as an upper level disturbance brings just enough instability to produce rainfall during peak afternoon heating. The balance of next week looks just hot and humid. Highs will remain in the middle to upper 90s, with lows in the middle to upper 70s.
