Great day out today! However it is hot right now with temperatures in the upper 80s to lower 90s. Don't be fooled by this. There are many weather stations across the metroplex that detect heat indexes of 100 degrees. If you are out and about, make sure that you drink plenty of water and you are not spending too much time outside.
It will continue to stay dry in most spots in the metroplex. There will be a chance an isolated storm or two in the area by late afternoon/evening. Higher rain chances will be to the south of Corsicana. Otherwise, expect highs to reach the mid 90s in most locations, which is just about on average for July.
For the Rest of the Week - Tuesday through Thursday should stay precipitation-free with highs in the mid to upper 90s with a few clouds. For locations to the east of I-35, any one spot of seeing an isolated shower or storm is 20%.
Weekend - After Friday, the chance for showers and thunderstorms start to increase as a surface front makes its way from the north. These are the days where just about anyone in North Texas has a chance of showers and thunderstorms. Despite the cold front coming through the area and the cloud coverage, we still expect things to be hot with highs peeking mainly at 97. We will continue to have rain chances until Wednesday of next week.
Early Next Week - Most of the early week should continue with summer-time weather - highs in the mid to upper 90s, with some clouds out at times. Monday through Wednesday, you might mention the chance of an isolated storm or two.
Please see the Texas Weather Outlook for more details.
Tropical Talk - There is a weak tropical wave located in Eastern Atlantic that could show some signs of development in the next five days. The National Hurricane Center only gives a 20% chance of cyclone development over the course of five days. However, the GFS (that is known for being totally inaccurate past ten days) shows a significant tropical low hugging and affecting the coast of Florida next week, but the European (which is far more reliable) shows nothing over this time period.
Have a great rest of the day.
