Weather daytime Mid 90s evening Low 90s overnight Low 80s morning Mid 70s Your Forecast By Burton Fitzsimmons07/24/2014 08:37 AM Rain This Week? Maybe TodayWe see light showers on the morning radar loop and, sure enough, some rain falling from the clouds as early as 5:45 a.m. near the Capitol, all courtesy of a weak disturbance moving through Texas. It's our best rain chance of the week with odds at 20%. Even with the extra clouds and rain potential, we still expect temps to rise into mid and upper 90s this afternoon.Right now:Click for map of yesterday's highs.Upper-level high pressure is centered over New Mexico this morning. While still providing quite a bit of influence on our Texas weather, we're kind of on the "periphery" of the heat ridge. Today's Texas forecast:Futurecast shows isolated showers and storms trying to fire up near and especially east along the I-10 corridor as the day warms up. Most of the heavy rain will be concentrated closer to Houston, we believe, and it should all die down with the setting of the sun tonight. As the disturbance moves southwest into Mexico tomorrow, high pressure nudges back over Texas, so our weather story simply looks hot and dry for the final weekend of July. We might end up directly under the core of heat early next week before the high pressure breaks down again, allowing for another possible rain chance by the middle of next week.
