While we’re not under any direct threat of severe weather, summertime afternoon showers and thunder remain possible again today. Central Texas has already received a few rounds of scattered showers and storms this morning with additional development expected across southeast, east, north and northeast Texas by this afternoon. Some gusty outflow winds and lightning will be the main threats with any of the showers and storms that develop this afternoon. Boaters on area lakes will need to keep an eye on weather conditions as we head into the afternoon hours as well. Remember that outflow winds from nearby storms can cause issues for those out on lakes, even if the storms are not directly overhead, so make sure you have a way to monitor radar and weather notifications if you’re boating this afternoon. Cloud cover will help keep parts of central Texas a bit cooler than average for today, but elsewhere, we’ll carry on with the typical sunny, warm and humid summertime conditions throughout the day. Daytime highs and nighttime lows will be fairly seasonal with nothing too extreme for outdoor activities. The western half of the state, where humidity values will be lowest, will experience the greatest amount of daytime heating with highs in the upper 90s to low 100s. Just remember to stay hydrated and in the shade as much as possible to avoid heat related issues.
