DRY MORNING - No rain on the radar this morning across North Texas as unusually dry air for late August covers much of the state of Texas. The sky will be mostly sunny today, and highs will be in the mid to upper 90s.
FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND - Not much change. We warm substantially tomorrow with more spots reaching the triple digits. Humidity levels will very slowly increase. Otherwise, expect mostly sunny skies with afternoon highs in the upper 90s range between 95 and 99.
NEXT WEEK - Routine summer-time weather is the main headline for much of next week as the upper high pattern does not change much; mostly sunny with a few clouds with highs mostly in the mid to upper 90s with gradually increasing humidity levels. See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
LANE DANGEROUSLY CLOSE TO HAWAII - Hurricane Lane in the Central Pacific is now down to a high-end category four with maximum sustained winds of 145 mph. It will continue to gradually weaken as the center will pass just to the west of Hawaii. Despite the weakening and no direct landfall, persons should expect a dangerous impact in the islands with about a foot/2 feet of rain, dangerous storm surge and strong wind damage.
