The heat keeps on coming, but rain may be on the way

The highs are still high, but a shower or two could bring temperatures in the Rio Grande Valley down a few degrees.

McAllen and the rest of the Central Valley are are all looking to have highs around the 100-degree range, while the coast will enjoy highs in the 80s. On the west side of the area, Zapata and Rio Grande City will be seeing temps as high as 103 degrees.

A heat advisory remains in effect for much of the Valley, so residents should take precautions if spending an extended period of time outside.

Fortunately, forecasts from the National Weather Service say rain is a good possibility today, with most of the Valley looking at approximately a 40 percent chance of rain. Rain is more likely in the northeast chunk of the Valley, coming in between a 40 and 60 percent chance.

Rain stays in the forecast for the rest of the week, save for Wednesday. Today and tomorrow, however, are the Valley’s best chance to see some precipitation, with the latter half of the week only bringing in a 20 percent chance.
