Good morning and welcome to another beautiful day! This is the Texas Weather Roundup for Thursday, September 17. The Texas Weather Roundup is a daily morning weather blog containing the latest upcoming forecast and hazardous weather information that could influence your day. Temperatures were slow to fall overnight with upper 60s to 70s across Texas. Skies are clear across all of Texas this morning. The clear skies and abundant moisture have allowed fog to develop across Southeast Texas and South Texas. Fog will burn off by mid-morning.
A mostly sunny day is in store for all those in Texas today. A few exceptions will be across the Texas Panhandle and West Texas this afternoon and evening where a 10 to 25 percent chance of a popup storm does exist. By far a majority will be dry. Those along the coast in South Texas and the Rio Grande Valley have a 10 to 20 percent chance of experiencing a shower this afternoon.
Another summer day can be expected with temperatures climbing a few degrees today compared to yesterday. High temperatures will end up in the 90 to 99 degree range today. Heat index values will be about five degrees warmer than the air temperature in the 95-102 degree range. South winds and hot temperatures will result in elevated wildfire danger.
Low temperatures tonight will be in the upper 60s across the Texas Panhandle and West Texas up to 80 degrees along the coast. Everyone in between will end up in the mid 70s with humid conditions continuing.
