STILL VERY HOT: The Heat Advisory in effect for much of North Texas has been expanded to include parts of East Texas and more of the adjacent states as well. Hot and humid conditions will prevail this afternoon with highs mostly in the upper 90s with heat indices around 105-108°.
REST OF THE WEEK AND THE WEEKEND: The trough associated with the "ghost of Barry" will continue to drift to the northeast, and that will clear to even drier conditions this week and the weekend. With mostly sunny skies, we expect highs in the upper 90s for the rest of this weekend and the weekend days.
NEXT WEEK: An approaching surface front could introduce the chance of rain across a good chunk of Texas early next week, and the chance of showers and storms could shift into South Texas by mid-week. See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
TROPICS: The Atlantic Basin is quiet, and tropical storm formation is not expected this week.
