Yesterday was great for solar eclipse viewing in North Texas. As expected, the skies were mostly sunny, with only a few clouds. DFW even dropped two degrees at the peak time of the eclipse.
This is one of the best photo's I have seen floating across the web. This is from Barry Butler, taken in Southern Illinois...
The Rest of the Week - The moisture levels will rise slowly this evening, and showers and storms will be possible during the overnight hours. The greatest chance will be Wednesday evening where a surface front will drop from the north.
Most models suggest that the surface front will stall, and we should mention a chance of afternoon/evening showers and storms. Highs for the rest of the week should struggle to get out of the 80s in most spots.
In fact, models suggest that we will continue to see a cooling trend into next week as well with highs struggling to get out of the 80s. No sign of any excessively hot weather as we are reminded about the beginning of metrological fall (September 1). See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
