Hot, dry weather has been the story for Texas. Earlier this month, spotty showers and storms brought *some* rain to parts of the state. This is evident on the graphic below which shows the percent of normal precipitation from July 1st through the 24th. Despite some pockets of above-normal rainfall, the state continues to sink further into drought. Fortunately, some changes are on the way.
The ridge will be pushed farther west beginning Sunday as a large trough digs into the East Central United States. We will see cooler weather and a chance for showers and thunderstorms, especially early next week. We could even see a few stronger storms. Hopefully, we can get some more widespread rainfall in the state.
