Rain Chance Increasing Through Thursday

With a few sprinkles already moving through the area this morning, we recommend you grab your umbrella today and keep it handy! A 30% rain chance for today rises to 50% tomorrow then 60% Thursday, all as tons of tropical moisture flow in from TROPICAL STORM ODILE to our west. Look for mostly cloudy skies and highs near 90.

ODILE still looks fairly balanced and organized on this morning's satellite loop. The center of the storm is currently near 850 miles to our west, now moving over the Gulf of California:

The official forecast calls for ODILE to diminish to a DEPRESSION in the next day or so, with gradual weakening to continue as the storm moves north...possibly crossing the border into Arizona.

It's worth noting the low pressure area in the West Gulf, too, as it will help propel a few coastal showers and storms up towards the I-10 corridor during the next few days. Futurecast shows very spotty activity developing today, then more widespread coverage tomorrow. This morning's model picks up on some Wednesday night storm development along old storm boundaries, and it shows potential to get quite heavy. As you can see, the results of a slow-moving storm could quickly add up:

Here's a look at NOAA's 7 Day rain outlook.

Upper-level high pressure nudges a big stronger over Texas by Friday then weakens again, allowing a cold front to drop down this direction during the second half of our weekend. It's at least a 30% rain chance both Saturday and Sunday. Early next week, temps are looking seasonable or nearly normal for this time of year. See the 7 Day Forecast for full details.

Hottest August on Record... NASA says the average global temperature during August 2014 was the highest ever recorded. Summer 2014 ranged 4th hottest in written history.

Enjoy your Tuesday.
