Flood Watch for the Borderland; Hot now & Scorching by the weekend across Texas

Summer will officially begin on Tuesday across the Northern Hemisphere. We don’t need a reminder that summer has already been underway for several weeks in Texas. Some lucky folks will have the opportunity for a downpour over the next several days, but by far, most will continue to remain hot and dry. Scorching temperatures, ranging from 103 to 110 degrees, are expected by the end of the work week and over the weekend. Some previous record high temperatures are in danger of being broken, along with our peak energy usage records.

Heavy Rain through Wednesday in the Borderland

One to two inches of rain with locally higher amounts are expected in the Borderland through Wednesday morning. These heavier rains may lead to pockets of flash flooding, debris flows, mud flows, and impassable roadways.

Over the next two days across the Borderland, scattered to numerous thunderstorms are expected. These thunderstorms will be capable of producing heavy rainfall. That heavy rain may lead to pockets of flash flooding. Flood watches are in effect through Wednesday morning across Far West Texas and the Borderland – including the El Paso metro. The high rain chances and cloud cover will help keep temperatures comparatively lower versus the rest of Texas. Rain chances will decrease significantly on Wednesday in the Borderland as drier air filters in from the east.

Hot, followed by Very Hot

High temperatures will continue to remain in the upper 90s to lower 100s through mid-week. We'll see temperatures trend upward to 103-110 degrees across Texas by Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

High temperatures will remain in the upper 90s to lower 100s through mid-week. We’ll see temperatures trend upward to 103-110 degrees across Texas by Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. We may see humidity levels lower, but even if it is a slightly ‘drier’ heat, we’ll see temperatures trend toward record-high values. Some locations in Texas will likely approach 110 degrees this weekend, including perhaps some higher population centers. Several more prominent cities in Texas will likely experience their hottest temperature in several years come Saturday. A few sea-breeze storms will be possible every afternoon through late week near the coast.

With an avid interest in the weather since childhood, David’s interest grew out of a debilitating fear of thunderstorms. The more he learned about how thunderstorms worked, the more he wanted to chase them. David began storm chasing in 2008 and co-founded Texas Storm Chasers in 2009. It turns out he also had a knack at providing weather information in the evolving world of digital media. He continues to chase storms while also providing Texas weather information via Texas Storm Chasers’ vast digital media presence.
