COOL START - It feels really good this morning; temperatures range from the mid 60s to mid 70s across the region. Add a nice little breeze to it and it will be perfect weather for any outdoor activity for this time of the year. While it is fun to fantasize about the cooler morning weather, it is not going to last that long today. We will warm up to the mid 90s this afternoon with mostly sunny skies, still a few degrees below our usual average high for early August.
THE REST OF THE WEEK AND THE WEEKEND - We have once again entered the time of the year where the weather really does not change much. We will continue to forecast more sun than clouds with afternoon highs in the mid to upper 90s with morning lows in the upper 70s to low 80s.
NEXT WEEK - It really looks like most of next week will feature much of the same weather as well; hot, dry, mostly sunshine with highs in the upper 90s to low 100s. Not much will change with our weather pattern for much of next week. See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
TROPIX - All is quiet in the Atlantic Basin, and no tropical cyclone development is expected through the weekend. Keep in mind that the Climatological peak of hurricane season typically comes in mid September.
