The dew point dropped like a rock yesterday afternoon leading to clear skies and much more comfortable weather overnight. A little breeze, low humidity and a high in the upper 80s will make today nearly picture perfect. Get out and enjoy it while you can as the relief will be short. The high pressure system bringing the dry air isn't all that large. Once it moves offshore tomorrow winds will shift to come out of the south, bringing warmer and more humid air. Tomorrow's high temperature should push 90 degrees.
Saturday night, Sunday and Monday, warm and humid with a chance of showers or a thunderstorm. Highs in the mid 80s, lows around 70. The chance of showers is pretty low and they will be more of the scattered variety rather than Wednesday night's wall of water lightning extravaganza. As of now the forecast beyond Monday kind of breaks down. On the menu is sunny, warm and dry or cloudy, showery, and humid.
On the tropical weather scene, Dolly has been downgraded to a tropical depression and is now over Marfa, Texas after killing at least one person in Mexico, cutting power to 200,000 customers in south Texas, and wrecking the Texas cotton and sorghum harvests. Hurricane Genevieve is stilll churning away in the eastern Pacific and the National Hurricane center is keeping its eye on a tropical wave near the Cape Verde islands.
