No Rain this Morning - Showers and storms are nonexistent in North Texas this morning, which is a big difference because some parts in the north received nearly two inches of rain in a time span of an hour. Additionally, temperatures are a tad cooler than yesterday; no 80s on the board as of 5:00 AM.
Today will be somewhat similar to yesterday, sunny with clouds out at times with chances of isolated afternoon/evening showers and storms 'randomly'. The best chance of any one spot getting wet will be in the 10-20 percent bracket. Highs should range from 93-98 today.
The Weekend - Not much change. Expect mostly clear skies for both days with highs nearing the century mark once again. The humidity values will make it feel even hotter. Just understand that the chance of showers and storms are really low, but not zero, but is less than ten, and will not get mentioned in the forecast.
Solar Eclipse Day - A good day is ahead for those who want to watch nature's most awe-inspiring sights. Mostly sunny with only a few passing clouds, and a very small chance of a shower or two during the partial eclipse from 11:39 to 2:39. The high will be nearing 100 degrees again. Also, like I have been saying for weeks, DO NOT look with a naked eye at ANY part of the eclipse. This is still a 'partial' eclipse, and the peak for DFW will come at 1:09 to 1:10 PM.
Next Week - We continue to remain dry early next week, but mid-week, a surface front drops from the north, and that will open the door for more scattered showers and storms. The best chance of one spot getting wet is in the 20 percent category, but that will only change with time.
Tropics - As expected near the peak of hurricane season, the Atlantic is getting more active
Tropical Storm Harvey - This system is bringing heavy rainfall to the Windward Islands this morning, and it will come across the Caribbean in the next few days before making landfall in Belize and Mexico's Yucatan. As of right now, conditions are not favorable for development, and the NHC precludes from making this a hurricane for now.
Invest 92L - This one is expected to form into Tropical Depression Ten or Tropical Storm Irma during the next day or so. The modeling brings this near Cuba and the Bahamas for the next few days, but due to harsh conditions, most models die out before it reaches Florida.
The East One - This one is expected to gain latitude. If this does develop, it is expected to recurve into the Atlantic, posing no threat to the U.S.
