HOT AND DRY - The surface maps this morning shows broad ridging over the south-central U.S. with the more focused ridging over the south-eastern part of the country, which means hot weather will persist for North Texas. With abundant sunshine, we expect highs in the upper 90s again this afternoon. A seabreeze shower or two is possible for our southern counties.
REST OF THE WEEK - Not much change tomorrow; hot and dry weather will continue with highs in the upper 90s. A cold front starts to approach from the north, but only makes it to Central Oklahoma. A few showers and thunderstorms are possible for mainly our northern counties along the Red River, but a couple can't be ruled out here. But the odds of any one spot getting wet are only about one in ten... We will continue with a dry forecast for Thursday and Friday with more sun than clouds with highs in the middle to upper 90s.
FOOTBALL WEATHER - Summit High School is kicking off their first football game of the season with their Inaugural Border Brawl game against Page High School in Sand Springs, Oklahoma this Friday (7p kickoff). Highs for the game will be around the low 90s, falling into the upper 80s by the final whistle.
Lake Ridge High School subsequently has their first game of the season in Tulsa against Union High School on Friday (7p kickoff). Again, temperatures will be in the low 90s at kickoff, falling to around 88 by the end of the fourth quarter.
Mansfield High School takes on Broken Arrow High School this Friday (7p kickoff). We continue to forecast dry conditions for the game with temperatures at around 93 starting off, falling into 87 by the final whistle.
Timberview High School also travels to Oklahoma to compete with Bixby High School this Friday (7:30p kickoff). As the sun sets, temperatures will be around 90 by kick off, falling to around 85 by the end of the fourth quarter.
THE WEEKEND - Meteorological Fall begins this Saturday, September 1st. However, you must know that it does not magically turn cooler once we hit September. The weekend will be hot and humid as we deal with abundant sunshine on both days. Highs will be around 94-97 on both days.
NEXT WEEK - Not much change. Mostly sunny days with little change in the weather pattern. Highs will stay close to 95 degrees for much of next week; no signs of a pattern changing cold front for now. See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
TROPIX - The Atlantic Basin continues to remain amazingly quiet for this time of the year, and tropical cyclone formation is not expected this week.
