Feels Like July This Week

On Wednesday and through the first half of the weekend, look for morning lows in the muggy upper 70s, a few clouds and maybe a quick early shower on the ocean breeze, and highs around 90 degrees. Shower chances go up a bit on Sunday and Monday, as the atmosphere moistens slightly, but those 90 degree highs will continue.

Tropical Depression Bill is expected to dump an extra 4 to 8 inches of rain on portions of Texas and Oklahoma that are already saturated. At 5 am, the center of Bill was located about 45 miles south of Waco, Texas, and the depression was moving north at 13 miles per hour. Flooding will be a serious problem for much of eastern and central Texas, including the Houston and Dallas metro areas, as well as Oklahoma, before the system moves into Arkansas and parts of the Midwest.
