Rain Chances Returning to the Southeast

Tropical Storm Bill strengthen just before making landfall near Port O'Connor, TX between Houston and Corpus Christi. The greatest threat from Bill is heavy rainfall near and along the South Texas beaches. NWS forecasts anywhere from 4 to 8 inches of rain and up to 10 inches of isolated rain are possible north of Port Aransas. Local hazards include coastal and inland flooding as well as, tropical storm force winds as far inland as Victoria. Bill is forecast to weaken to a tropical depression by Wednesday, but still produce significant amounts of rainfall from North Texas to the Ohio River Valley in the upcoming days.

In the State of Florida, a large area of high pressure will keep temperatures higher than normal and rain chances below average. Afternoon heat indices from the Panhandle to Central Florida will range anywhere from 100 to 105 through midweek. By Friday, moisture will return across the state and afternoon rain chances will increase through Sunday.
