Your Wednesday Evening Forecast

Just a hour or two ago good rains fell in Goliad County and Western Victoria County. Unlike the last few days, we didn’t see much rain north and east of Victoria. We will have another day or two of rain chances before we dry out this weekend. Highs this weekend will be in the upper 90s and early next week will be dry as well with the jet stream well north of South Texas. In the tropics, we are still watching Hurricane Franklin. Over the next few hours , it will become a cat 1 storm before making landfall tonight into early Thursday morning north of Veracruz. Invest 99-L is looking unimpressive but over the next few days it slowly get it act together as it moves towards the Atlantic.

Tomorrow we will see scattered storms possibly with some of the moisture from Franklin working towards Texas. It seems as if the best chance of rain will be near the coast. Friday high pressure settles into the crossroads and we may see some stray showers but overall a hot day. Tonight lows fall back into the middle 70s. Thursday we will see scattered storms here or there throughout the crossroads with highs in the lower to middle 90s. Friday will be warmer with less rain coverage. Marine forecast for tomorrow calls 4-5 foot seas and winds out of the southeast winds. Tomorrow we will have scattered storms Thursday and maybe Friday. Drying out into the weekend with highs in the upper 90s and lows in the middle 70s..
