Your Sunday Evening Forecast
It is another hot afternoon in the crossroads with middle to upper 90s and we have heat index values into the triple digits and there is a heat advisory for our southwestern counties which will expire this evening. And radar is showing storms towards the Houston area. We did see showers across our eastern zones but those are long gone. Strong storms are moving through North Texas right now and models are suggesting that some of the energy will sink south which may lead to scattered storms Monday afternoon. The upper trough will continue to move south and then high pressure will move back over the Crossroads which will limit rain chances by midweek.
Also the high pressure will force our tropical wave south. We have brand new potential tropical cyclone seven that has a good chance of becoming Franklin over the next day or so. Invest 99-L in the Central Atlantic is slowly trying to get its act together but is having a hard time doing so. NHC gives it a 50% of developing into a tropical storm or depression. Tonight we will see lows fall back into the upper 70s. Monday you can expect more heat with afternoon storms expected throughout the crossroads. Monday night the temperatures will fall back into the upper 70s. Marine forecast calls for 3-4 foot seas and bays have a slight chop. The next seven days will we see afternoon storms with rain chances decreasing bu the weekend.
