HEAT AND HUMIDITY

Temps will continue to run above normal for Saturday and Sunday until a cold front arrives Sunday night. Plan on highs in the mid 90s with heat indices between 100-105 Saturday afternoon and highs in the low 90s with heat indices near 100 Sunday afternoon. Heat Safety tips: http://bit.ly/NWSHeatSafety

We’ve now had 17 days of 90+ heat so far. Our average for a year at Camp Mabry is 111.

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND STORM CHANCES AND WEATHER ALERT

Best bet for rain: Sunday night into Monday morning. That’s when I’ve hoisted a WEATHER ALERT for the possibility of some strong to severe storms and heavy rain. Hail and High Winds are the main threats and rain totals could reach up to 1.5” with isolated higher totals.

Could we see a storm Saturday? Yes, BUT it looks like the cap on the atmosphere will be strong enough to keep storms from firing. IF a rogue storm does manage to fire, THEN is could be strong. I’m only forecasting a 10% chance late Saturday night.

Could we see more storms after the cold front rolls through Sunday night into Monday? Yes, but those storms would be more isolated to widely scattered – with the chance Monday afternoon to evening.

MORE RAIN NEXT WEEK

We’ll have a daily chance of scattered showers and storms next Tuesday through Friday with chances running 30-50%. Additional rain totals next week could reach 1-3” which could mean grand totals included the Memorial Day holiday weekend could reach 2-4”. At this point, as long as the rain falls over the course of multiple days as opposed to all at once, we should be able to handle it without significant flood threat.
