Happy October! - Although the month of October has arrived, it certainly won't feel like October for at least the next seven days. We start the day in the 60s to low 70s, warming to the low 90s by the peak of the day today. If this verifies, I do strongly believe that this could potentially be the last 90-degree day for this year, after having above-normal temperatures for a while.
For tomorrow, we should see a noticeable change in temperatures with highs reaching the low to mid 80s for that day, which is still a few degrees above normal temperatures. We will have to wait until next week to get a "real feel of October". However, the chance for scattered showers and storms start to increase by Tuesday night (after midnight) and Wednesday morning, tapering off by the evening hours.
Midweek - Aside from the rain, the rest of the week looks dry with clouds still in place. Both days should have ample cloud coverage, which will aid in making it feel cooler than it really is.
Friday and the Weekend - Sunshine returns back in full force on Friday, but a few clouds look likely during the weekend with highs in the upper 80s again. No precipitation in the forecast for any of these days. Conditions should also be nice and dry for high school/college football games taking place on Friday and Saturday. Also, go to the State Fair as well! It should be pleasant there too.
Next Week - Early next week, another cold front makes its way south, which will significantly drop temperatures to the mid to low 70s for the highs, even into the 50s for the lows. This would be the first "official" fall-like cool down of October, and man, it will sure feel like it.
Tropics - Good News! For the first time in almost two months, tropical cyclone formation is not expected for the next 2 days! However, we do have to keep an eye on an area of disturbed weather in the Northwestern Caribbean Sea. The global models don't fully develop this during the next 7-10 days, but this is still something to watch. See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
