Temperatures an hour before daybreak are already in the mid to upper 80s this morning. That's a clear indication of how hot it is going to be later in the day. But thankfully, a very weak cold front will come through later this morning which will trim our afternoon high back a couple of degrees. Highs will be in the mid to upper 100s with mostly sunny skies again.
It is worth noting that the Excessive Heat Warning remains in effect for areas to the south of Interstate 20 until 7p. Subsequently, a Heat Advisory remains in effect for the rest of the North Texas area.
MIDWEEK THROUGH FRIDAY - Not much change. Although we do start to cool down a few degrees as we progress through the week with afternoon highs closer to 100 degrees, a more tolerable kind of hot.
THE WEEKEND - Not much change in the current forecast. We will continue to forecast hot, humid, and breezy conditions with afternoon highs in the upper 90s/low 100s, closer to seasonal averages.
NEXT WEEK - On Monday morning, a trough will push the upper high to the west, which will allow for a cold front to come through by Monday. This has been indicated by global models for quite some time, which also means that we will have a decent chance of showers and thunderstorms on Monday with highs in the mid 90s for the rest of the week. That would be about 20 degrees cooler than in recent days if this forecast solution were to verify. Expect mostly sunny conditions for the rest of the week. See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
TROPICS - All is quiet in the Atlantic Basin, and tropical cyclone formation is not expected within the next week.
