SURFACE ANALYSIS - We have a deep trough over the nation's midwest sector this morning, with a surface low over that same location. It is located on the borders of Iowa, Illinois, and Missouri. The trailing cold front (which is anomalous for late August) is in San Antonio, continuing to move south. Drier air is filtering in behind the front, and much of Texas should be dry for the next week, as a result. For North Texas, everyday will feature more sun than clouds with highs in the middle 90s during the afternoons. Morning lows will be in the mid 70s, very typical for August.
TOMORROW THROUGH FRIDAY - Not much change. We stay very sunny Wednesday and Thursday with afternoon highs between 95 and 98. Then on Friday, highs will get even closer to the 100° mark as the upper high continues to strengthen over Texas. Each day will be sunny and hot. Expect morning lows in the middle to upper 70s for the next three days.
THE WEEKEND - We will forecast a very sunny and hot weekend with more sun than clouds with dry air still in place. Highs will be in the upper 90s all weekend, with lows in the upper 70s.
NEXT WEEK - The upper high continues to stick around in our area for much of next week. This means a majority of next week will continue to remain dry. Look for mid to upper 90s in the afternoon. See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
TROPIX - Atlantic Basin continues to remain very quiet with no new tropical development expected this week. We are entering the peak of the Atlantic hurricane season, but cool water, dry air, and shear is precluding any development right now.
