RADAR CHECK: While all of the metro remains dry this evening, a couple of isolated thunderstorms continue to rotate through extreme Northeastern Texas this evening, on the west side of the circulation of Tropical Depression Cristobal, which is now over Southern Arkansas.
A very moist airmass will continue to stay in place tomorrow as a "death ridge" continues to be in place over the region. We will warm to the upper 90s, and some places will see their first 100 degree day of the year. The average first 100 degree day in North Texas falls on the first of July. If we don't hit it tomorrow, it will be awfully close, for sure.
Then, a rare June cold front will push into the region tomorrow afternoon, which will help to usher in drier air and breezier winds. The timing of the cold front will determine whether some spots see 100 degrees or not. One way or another, the drier weather combined with breezy conditions will spark fire concerns tomorrow afternoon and evening.
WEDNESDAY THROUGH THE WEEKEND: A very dry airmass in wake of a cold front will slightly cool us off by a few degrees. Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday will be very pleasant days for June. Expect a good supply of sunshine, lower humidity, and cooler nights. Highs will be in the low 90s, but lows will be well down in the 60s, and cooler spots will hit the upper 50s.
Not much change for the weekend as dry air continues to hang in here. The sky will be mostly sunny Saturday and Sunday with highs in the mid 90s and lows in the low 70s.
NEXT WEEK: Moist air begins to make a return early next week. As such, we will bring back the chance of a random, isolated shower or storm on Monday, and keep it in the forecast on a daily basis through the end of the week. Highs will be in the mid to upper 90s on most days.
TROPICS: Tropical Depression Cristobal is over Arkansas and will continue to weaken. The rest of the Atlantic Basin is quiet, and tropical storm formation is not expected this week.
ON THIS DAY IN 2001: Tropical Storm Allison hits Houston for the second time in three days. Louisiana and Southern Texas were inundated with rain, as Baton Rouge received over 18 inches over a couple of days. Some portions of Texas accumulated 36 inches by June 11.
