Dew Points Increase into Next Week, Enter Scattered Shower Chances
By Sunday, dew point temps will begin to slowly creep back into the low 60s. Monday through mid-week dew point temps will be back in the low to mid 60s. Bring on the sticky air once again.

Mid to End of Next Week Remains Uncertain
For remainder of next week, all eyes will be on the probable remnants of Hurricane Harvey. Harvey is expected to make landfall and stay in Texas through the beginning of next week.
Models still remain to be inconsistent with where the system will travel towards the middle of next week. This is what our local NWS said this morning:
Other than an increasing trend in pops late week, the track and impact of Harvey`s remnants are too uncertain to indicate any specific impacts for the Mid State at this time.
We will continue to keep an eye on things and keep you all updated with the latest information as it becomes available.
