The low clouds and Gulf moisture are back this moring. It's a warm and humid morning with temps mainly in the low 70s. The next weather maker is already setting up over the Rockies and will take a dive southward over the weekend. This will bring thunderstorm and possible severe weather chances to the region Saturday night. Low clouds will burn off right around lunchtime. It will be a hot and humid day and rather uncomfortable for any afternoon Fiesta events today. Highs will heat to the low 90s but feel like mid to upper 90s with the humidity.
Long range – another upper level storm will drive a cold front through the region late Saturday into Sunday morning. Current forecast models keep the bulk of the storm energy to the north of the area. That said, there is still a chance we could see our share of storm activity late Saturday into Sunday morning. The current projected track of the system indicates any storms that develop will be moving quickly. So, the threat for heavy rain/flooding is low. The activity should be east of the region by Sunday morning.
Parades and Fiesta activities on Saturday may be impacted if the system speeds up. We’ll keep an eye on it.
