Back on Track - It will feel much like summer once again today with the upper ridge taking over the area for the next couple of days. We will have to wait until this Sunday for it to feel like fall again. Wake-up temperatures are in the upper 60s in most spots.
Today will be another above-average day with increased humidity, with highs in the 90s in most spots. The average high for DFW is 79 degrees.
The Weekend - Temperatures will quickly rise during the day tomorrow; with abundant sunshine with day time heating, we expect high temperatures to be in the 90s in most spots. Fortunately, that should probably be our last 90 degree day for a while. By Sunday morning, a cold front sweeps through the region, which will bring the chance of scattered showers and storms, wind uptick, and, of course, way cooler temperatures. Be prepared to dress for temperatures in the upper 60s throughout the day on Sunday, something that we have been waiting for for a long time.
Football Weather - With a clear sky for high school football games tonight, temperatures will fall from the mid 80s at kickoff to near the upper 70s near the fourth quarter.
Summit High School travels to Lancaster to take on Lancaster High School tonight (kickoff @ 7:30p). The game should be played under a clear sky. About 84 degrees at kickoff, falling towards 78 by the final whistle tonight.
Wylie Marching Invitational - Great weather is in store for the Wylie Marching Contest with a great supply of sunshine throughout the day. Temperatures will peak at 90 at midday, falling into the mid 70s by the finals awards announcements.
Next Week - Although we stay dry for much of the week, we should note that we will be in a much cooler airmass that should stick around all week. Most days should be breezy with abundant sunshine with highs in the upper 70s or low 80s. Perfect fall weather for mid-October.
Tropics - A tropical disturbance that is well to the east of the Leeward Islands has a low chance of developing during the next five days. It should gain latitude and curve northward, and appears to be of no threat to land. Meanwhile, Hurricane Ophelia will become post-tropical cyclone this weekend, threatening Ireland and the U.K. The rest of the Atlantic Basin is quiet. Hurricane season runs all the way through November 31. See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
