Rain chances will be going up Thursday and Friday, all thanks to an upper level storm system, which will move through the state as we round out the week.
It does appear that the rain will start to pick up in coverage and intensity starting on Thursday afternoon and Thursday evening, as showers and storms develop along and ahead of the cold front. We will then see rain chances increase a little more for Thursday night and continue through the day on Friday.
Rainfall amounts, on average, will range from one to two inches across the Texas Forest Country. Some areas may see far less, while a few spotty areas could end up with three inches or more. This will all depend on where the heavy rain bands set up.
Wednesday night will be mostly cloudy with a 20% chance of showers. Lows in the lower-to-middle 70's. Winds will be light and out of the southeast at 5 mph.
Thursday will be mostly cloudy with a 70% chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly late in the day. Highs in the upper 80's to near 90. Winds will be out of the southeast at 10 mph.
With the added cloud cover and rain around toward the end of the week, we will see our daytime highs held down into the middle and upper 80's. This will certainly be a nice start to the month of August. Look for some sunshine returning this weekend, along with some lower humidity.
