Rain Chances Building... 

All eyes are on an area of low pressure in the Gulf of Mexico and right along the Texas coast.  The National Hurricane Center has given it a 20% chance of development but I believe that its going to move inland before anything has a chance to form.  The good new for us is that it will bring extra moisture to Central Texas, which will lead to a good chance of showers and thunderstorms over the next few days.

 Wednesday started warm and humid under a mostly cloudy sky.  Temperatures ranged from the upper 60s/low 70s in the Hill Country to the upper 70s along I-35.  The afternoon came as quite of a suprise as highs stayed below 100 in most locations.

Lightning will be a threat even with the less than 20% chance of isolated rain/storms this afternoon/evening.  Rain chances do go up for Thursday and Friday as the disturbance in the Gulf moves inland over south Texas.  Rain with a few thunderstorms will be in Saturday's forecast.  


Here's the mid-week look at how much rain is possible, subject to change:

Afternoon temperatures today will range from the middle 90s to a few possibly reaching 100.  Highs don't reach 100 Thursday through Saturday.  

The weather will be dry for the second and third day of the Labor Day Holiday.  Temperatures will inch northward during those two days to high temperatures nearing 100 both days.   There is more detail on your 7 Day Forecast.

Lightning Safety...
Lightning reared its ugliness on Tuesday.  Three children were struck by lightning out near the Field of Dreams ball field near Highway 71 and Hamilton Pool Rd.  It is vital that everyone be aware of their surroundings when thunder is heard and lightning seen.  Please familiarize yourself with some of these important lightning safety tips

In The Tropics...

HURRICANE CRISTOBAL is a Category One hurricane with winds up to 80 mph.  Only It is passing to the northwest of Bermuda this afternoon.  High surf and potential rip currents are affecting Bermuda and portions of the United States east coast from North Carolina northward.  

HURRICANE MARIE
 continues to weaken over the Pacific.  It is a Category One hurricane with winds of 75 mph.  Further weakening to a tropical storm is expected today.  High surf and potential rip currents continue to affect the west coast of the Baja Peninsula and southern California.

Have a good day.
