Salado Creek

Swimmers cool off in Salado Creek in Salado on Wednesday.

A chance of showers and thunderstorms is expected for Father’s Day and could continue into the middle of next week.

The National Weather Service predicts a 30 percent chance of rain Saturday afternoon and chances increase to 50 percent Sunday.

A midlevel trough is moving west bringing Gulf moisture from the east, according to Matt Bishop, meteorologist with the NWS Dallas/Fort Worth office.

“It’s not a big system like we see in the spring,” Bishop added, “it’s a summer lag that will bring a chance of rain each day early next week.”

“We need rain so it may not be a bad thing,” said Dennis Cain, meteorologist also with the NWS Dallas/Fort Worth office.

For the remainder of this week, the daytime temperatures will remain in the mid-90s with lows in the lower mid-70s.

While it is expected to be a cooler weekend, Cain noted that the increase in Gulf moisture will “still be miserable.” | 254-501-7562
