Unsettled weather conditions are in the forecast the next few days.

Showers and thunderstorms are possible Tuesday through Thursday in widely scattered fashion. As we close out the work week, high pressure will attempt to build across Texas and this may result in a true summer weather pattern for the first time this year.

Cloudy skies start the day off today. Patchy fog also is possible. Hazy conditions also are in the forecast due to high humidity and lingering smoke in the atmosphere from agricultural burning in Mexico and Central America.

Clouds may linger through lunch time. Partial clearing is expected during the afternoon. High temperatures climb into the middle and upper 80s. Isolated thunderstorms are possible. Winds remain out of the southeast at 10 to 20 mph.

A slight chance of showers and thunderstorms are in the forecast this evening and late tonight. Storms could move into the area from West Texas. Low clouds increase overnight with low temperatures in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Patchy fog is possible with southeast winds continuing overnight.

Showers and thunderstorms are possible Tuesday across the region. A disturbance will cross Texas giving us a 50-50 chance of showers and thunderstorms. Locally heavy rainfall is possible. Highs warm into the middle and upper 80s. Southeast winds average 10 to 15 mph, except gusty near any storms that develop.

Scattered thunderstorms remain in the forecast Tuesday night with lows around 70 degrees. Southeast winds continue at 10 to 15 mph.

Mostly cloudy skies are expected Wednesday. A few rays of sunshine are expected during the afternoon with highs in the middle to upper 80s. Southeast winds continue at 10 to 15 mph. Scattered showers and thunderstorms remain possible.

Rain chances drop off Thursday, but a few storms remain possible with highs in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees. Winds briefly become west at 10 to 15 mph Thursday.
