We've already started the day with a few isolated showers this morning. It hasn't been much but at least it's a change. I'm thinking we'll get more later today as instability increases. Unfortunately not everyone will see rainfall. I'm only throwing in a 30% chance of rain in your forecast today and a 20% tomorrow. Best case scenario should be anywhere from a trace to 1/4". Keep your fingers crossed that you get something.
Even with the rainfall it doesn't look like temperatures will budge much. Those that actually get a bit of rain may be a bit cooler because of evaporational cooling but other than that -- it's going to stay very hot today and this weekend. We hit another triple digit day yesterday and we'll have many more to come. I don't see these temperatures backing down for a few weeks. Our count so far is 4 days above 100 at Camp Mabry and 1 day at ABIA.
Here are the comparisons for Camp Mabry.
2015: 4 (and counting!)
2011: 90 (All-time record)
Annual Average: 13

Last week, the state finally pulled out of drought conditions according to the Drought Monitor. Unfortunately, our dry weather has sent a small part of East Texas back into Moderate Drought. Check the map here: http://droughtmonitor.unl.edu/Home/StateDroughtMonitor.aspx?TX
Ozone will keep our air quality in the "Moderate Air Quality" the rest of the week.
