SAN ANGELO – Slight rain chances were forecast for the San Angelo area beginning Sunday evening and persisting through Tuesday, but so far they have been more miss than hit.
Scattered showers began forming Monday afternoon around Kerrville and are moving north slowly but are not likely to hold together long enough to reach the San Angelo area.
Those scattered showers contain brief heavy rainfall but are not large enough to produce any significant rainfall. Some minor, short-lived flooding will occur with the larger storms.
The forecast calls for a 30% chance of rain mainly before 7 p.m. Monday and after 1 p.m. Tuesday. Afternoon high temperatures will stay in the mid to lower 90s region wide through Wednesday after the passage of that weak cold front Sunday.
No severe weather is forecast. The outlook for the Independence Day weekend is mostly dry and hot with afternoon high temperatures reaching back up to near 100 degrees.
There is a ban on all outdoor burning in Tom Green County and the County Judge has declared a disaster and banned the sale, use and discharge of all fireworks except for shows sanctioned by the City of San Angelo Fire Marshal within the San Angelo City Limits.
As of Tuesday afternoon, the Star Spangled Concert & Fireworks Show Sunday at the San Angelo River Stage will go on as planned as will the Lake Nasworthy Fireworks display on Independence Day, Monday, July 4.
