A little hotter than yesterday, we are already starting the day out mild. At 5:00 AM, DFW Airport recorded a temperature of 80 degrees this morning. Surrounding locations are in the 70s, warming up to the upper 80s to low 90s later today.
We are dry now, but we can't rule out the chances of scattered showers and storms during the afternoon/evening hours. These showers will be ahead of a complex of rain moving northwest out of North Texas. The best chance of one spot getting wet is in the 20% category, but if you don't see anything today, don't worry, there will hopefully be much better chances Wednesday morning.
Mid-Week - Wednesday seems to be a really good chance for showers and storms here in North Texas, mainly in the morning hours. Models continue to indicate that a complex of showers and storms will move from the north, bringing some downpours, lightning, and some gusty winds at times. The good news is that I am not expecting severe weather, but it could get windy. There is a 50-50 chance of one location getting wet.
After Wednesday, things should be much drier as we finish the work week. There still will be a chance for a shower or storm, but widespread rainfall should not be an issue after this time. Mainly in the afternoon and evening hours, the chance of one spot getting wet is in the 20-30 percent bracket. Otherwise, expect sunny skies with clouds out at times, and highs ranging from 90-93.
The Weekend - Saturday looks like a dry look with highs in the low 90s. You can never rule out the chance for a shower or storm this day. Sunday, we could see scattered to numerous showers and storms mainly during the afternoon and evening hours, but it will not be a washout. Otherwise, expect partly cloudy conditions with highs in the low 90s. This will feel good, especially, climatologically speaking, the hottest part of summer.

Tropical Talk - There is only one thing to talk about in the Atlantic Basin, and that is Tropical Depression Emily (formally tropical storm). At this time right now, it appears that it will no longer affect the US after it gets out of Florida, and should continue living in the Atlantic Basin. Here is the official NHC track.
Have a great day today.
