Rain chances finally return thanks in part to a weak front approaching the upper gulf coast. Rain amounts are set to be under a quarter inch starting Monday just North of Houston. The Hunstville/Bryan College station could also see the first rain in weeks. Most Houstonians hope the rain advances into the area late Monday and Tuesday. Our 100 degree days may be numbered, if the rain starts to to fall by Monday. As of Sunday June 28 Houston has seen six 100 degree days in a row. During the heat wave of 1980 Houston had eight 100 degree days in June. All total Houston has seen twenty days in a row of above 95 degree weather with little to no rain. That may change by the first part of the week with isolated summer showers each afternoon through the work week if the models are correct in finally moving out the blocking high pressure ridge of the last three week towards the West. Right now tropical downpours are possible, but not likely as we monitor the progress of a tropical wave about to move into the warm gulf waters near the Bay of Campeche. The models are not consistent with where this disorganized wave will eventually end up or if it develops further. Right now the probability of develoment is rather low.
