We have officially entered the time of the year where the overall weather pattern does not change much. You can say "today will be mostly sunny and very hot with afternoon highs in the low to mid 100s" and get the forecast right 98% of the time. This will be the case for the next week as an area of high pressure builds over the rockies and spreads into Texas over the course of this week. Highs will be in the low 100s this afternoon.
REST OF THE WEEK THROUGH THE WEEKEND - Not much change at all. In fact, we get even hotter by this weekend. We continue to forecast mostly sunny skies each day with afternoon highs in the low to mid 100s. There is a possibility Friday and/or Saturday's high could be exceed 104 or 105 by the afternoon. The record high for Dallas on July 20 is 104, set back in 2000. Anything above 104 would likely be a record high at this point.
NEXT WEEK - Expect much of the same weather this next week with mostly sunny skies under hot, humid conditions. Afternoon highs will continue to stay in the low to mid 100s. No sign of any relief from the triple-digit heat for at least the next ten days. See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
TROPICS - Beryl became a Remnant Low yesterday over the North Atlantic and dissipated this morning. The rest of the Atlantic Basin, including the Gulf of Mexico, remains very quiet. Tropical cyclone formation is not expected this week.
