Radar Check - A few showers are located well to the northwest of DFW, near Graham and Jacksboro. They will continue to push to the northeast this morning, but most locations in north Texas should have a nice morning commute traveling to work and school.
DFW currently has a temperature of 75 degrees, which is still a few degrees above average. We will have to wait until Wednesday or Thursday to experience any noticeable changes to our weather. Highs will be in the low 90s today with clouds increasing this afternoon and evening. The chance for a stray shower or two is low, but not zero.
Letterman Weather - As the cold front arrives, much needed rain becomes possible on Wednesday and Thursday, mainly in the form of occasional scattered showers and storms. But the good news is, highs will only be in the low to mid 80s on both days, with abundant cloud coverage to give you a fall "feel".
Friday should also be a perfect day for high school football games with seasonably warm temperatures, a mix of sun and clouds with highs only in the low 80s.
Bands of America Regional Championships - This Saturday, Bands of America will host its yearly Regional Championships at Dragon Stadium in Southlake, Texas. The weather throughout the day should be sunny and pleasant with highs in the low to mid 80s with chance of rain almost non-existent.
The Summit High School Marching Band will be taking on multiple schools across the metroplex at this competition (prelim. performance at 3:15p). Right now, conditions favor abundant sunshine with the temperature ranging from 80-84 degrees, which should not be too hot if you are planning to go watch some amazing marching bands perform this weekend.
Next Week - We stay dry for most of next week, which isn't surprising. Keep in mind that we are in one of the driest parts of the year. Then, we begin late severe weather season in November and December.
Tropics - Hurricane Lee is a stationary system in the Central Atlantic that is expected to pose no threat to land and kick to the northeast in a few days.
Hurricane Maria, which is down to a category 1 storm with maximum sustained winds of 80 mph, will remain offshore, but will come close enough to warrant a tropical storm warning for the North Carolina Outer Banks, where winds could exceed 35 mph. This storm will move away from the coast later this week.
The rest of the Atlantic Basin, including the Gulf of Mexico, is quiet. See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
