*I am still leading at the drum major camp in Denton, so no Texas Weather Discussion Video today*
STILL HOT: Temperatures are currently in the low 80s this morning, which is a good indicator that the afternoon and evening will be very hot. The air remains very moist across North Texas, and today will be another mostly sunny and hot day with highs in the mid 90s with heat indices in the 105-110° range this afternoon. The Heat Advisory has been extended until 7pm today to address this.
THE WEEKEND: Mostly sunny and warm weather continues tomorrow with highs in the mid 90s again. Then, moisture levels will rise on Sunday, and we will mention the chance of a few widely scattered showers and thunderstorms by the morning and afternoon. The high Sunday will be between 90-95°.
NEXT WEEK: Routine early summer weather will be the story for the early part of next week; mix of sun and clouds and humid with daily chances of “isolated, mostly morning/afternoon showers and storms”. Highs will be in the low 90s, and overnight lows will be in the mid 70s. We should turn mostly dry for the latter half of the week.
TROPICS: The Atlantic Basin continues to remain very quiet, and no new tropical cyclones is expected to develop this weekend.
SUMMER BEGINS: The official start of the summer solstice lies today at 10:46 AM, which marks the beginning of astronomical summer, which lasts through September 23. Astronomical seasons are different than meteorological seasons, as they are defined by Earth’s natural rotation around the sun, which we define as two solstices and two equinoxes.
I will be taking my vacation week next week, so expect the next Texas Weather Discussion Video and blog update from me by Monday, the first of July. Enjoy the weekend!
