BROWNSVILLE (NEWS CENTER 23) — We have seen quiet weather for the most part this week.
While no rainfall has fallen in the Valley, at least the runoff from the showers and thunderstorms that developed across southwest Texas last night into today will eventually reach the Reservoir.
Some of the moisture around the area may provide isolated showers and thunderstorms to develop across the extreme western portions of the Valley but it appears High Pressure system across the northwest Gulf of Mexico will limit moisture across most of the Rio Grande Valley.
I have made a few minor changes in the forecast.
Models show dry conditions for Saturday with slightly better chances to see moisture on Sunday. Good news is by Wednesday, our chances for rain increase as moisture from the Pacific and the Caribbean ridge come in making for a better environment for scattered showers
Wednesday and Thursday.
Of course we are still too far away to exactly decide if this will be the case or if we will continue to see this dry summer like weather pattern.
Highs will continue to stay in the mid to upper 90's with a heat index in the triple digits.
Summer officially begins at 7:51 am Saturday!
