Forecast: Rain chances starting Monday

Here are the latest updates from the KVUE Storm Team.

AUSTIN, Texas — It has been such a hot pattern for pretty much the entirety of the month of June, with all but one day during the month registering triple digits, meaning June 2022 has now tied with 2008 for most June triple-digit days.

While this heat has been a great time to be out cooling off by the water, we are expecting changes. That area of high pressure that kept us high and dry shifts westward, allowing a weak "cool" front to slide in next week, with good very rain chances for Monday, including scattered storms and 60% of the KVUE viewing area likely seeing rain. While none of these storms are expected to be severe, some storms may have brief downpours, which would be beneficial when it comes to our drought situation, especially if the majority of Monday's rain falls in the Hill Country, where exceptional drought conditions exist.

These rain chances continue through at least the middle of the week, with the front stalling over portions of South Texas and the Rio Grande Valley. Rain chances drop to 40% for Tuesday, 30% for Wednesday and Thursday, and 20% for Friday, so Monday appears to be the only washout, if that.

While we're at it, let's talk about those temperatures! That's because while we think we may flirt with the triple digits on Monday, we drop to around average (95) for Tuesday and Wednesday with the frontal passage. Thursday and Friday though? We're looking at lower 90s -- that's right, lower 90s -- for highs to ring in July. We do warm to the upper 90s to near triple digits for Independence Day weekend.

We are also looking at two tropical systems in the Atlantic Basin. There is projection of a system in the Gulf that has a 20% chance of development over the next five days and looks to be doing little more than making for an additional rainmaker for Central Texas (hey, we need it though!). There's also a second system in the Central Atlantic, well east of the Lesser Antilles, but this has a 40% chance of development within the next 48 hours and a 70% chance of development over the next five days. It will be interesting to see once its track is identified what impacts this may have on the U.S., if any at all.

Increasing clouds and isolated showers. East-southeast wind at 5 to 10 mph.       LOW: 78

Mostly cloudy with scattered showers and thunderstorms, which are NOT expected to be severe. Northeast wind at 5 to 10 mph.                                         HIGH: 99
