Once again shower and thunderstorm activity will be suppressed by high pressure. The area won't be completely dry, but the majority will stay rain-free to close out the weekend.

That means Sunday will be another hot and muggy day. Afternoon highs will top out in the mid 90s with Feels Like temperatures as hot as 104 degrees Sunday.  

A gradual increase in rain chances will occur as we move into the work week. High pressure will start to get moved to our west, allowing for a trough and weak frontal boundary to move into the area. The higher rain chances will allow for some cooling of afternoon highs. Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms will be possible Monday and Tuesday with most of the activity being confined to the afternoon.  

Wednesday looks to be the wettest day with a likely rain chance as showers and thunderstorms will be off and on throughout the day. Thursday will stay wetter than normal before rain chances go down to end the week. Next weekend looks mainly dry with hot and muggy conditions returning.

Beryl remains a subtropical storm at this time with 40 mph winds. Beryl is not expected to generate into a tropical cyclone. The forecast calls for Beryl to slowly move to the NNE, gradually transitioning back into a remnant area of low pressure.
