Showers and Storms On the Increase Beginning Tuesday

Saturday was a hot day in the Crossroads with temperatures in the middle to upper 90s. Gonzales recorded a temperature in the triple digits during the day. One thing that is noticeable is the air becoming more humid. During the last few days, dewpoints were in the lower to middle 60s. Now they are beginning to rise back into the seventies. As a result, rain is not too far away. A storm system will arrive to provide the Crossroads with showers and storms on Tuesday.

In addition, a cold front will try to move in as well. The cold front will not drop down any cooler temperatures. The front will remain near the area on Wednesday so scattered showers and storms are possible. Rain chances don’t go away altogether into the weekend. With daytime heating and enough moisture, you can expect some isolated showers around Thursday into the weekend. Highs will remain in the middle to upper 90s. Lows will remain steamy into the middle 70s. In the tropics, the Atlantic remains good and quiet which is great news.
