General Discussion: We will trend away from the recent mild, frequently cloudy, and occasionally wet weather pattern of the past week. However, it won’t go to the other extreme with widespread above-normal heat. Instead, temperatures will trend closer to normal by late-week. Widespread 100-degree weather is not anticipated this week. Today is the stormiest day but trending drier for most of the state.
Today: Showers and thunderstorms common over the West zone and western North zone, scattered into the Far West and North Central zones, isolated into the western South Central zone. More sunshine and warmer in the South Central zone today, including both Austin and San Antonio. Likely dry and a bit warmer in Houston today. Low-to-mid-90s for Austin, San Antonio, and Houston. Dallas-Fort Worth may not get out of the 80s. Dry and near-normal heat in the Rio Grande Valley.
Tomorrow: Much less rain coverage, but still chances in North and West Texas. Trending a bit hotter overall for the ERCOT system, with low-to-mid-90s common for most locations. Hotter in the Valley.
