The Heat of the Year - DFW hit 97 degrees yesterday. If a location in the DFW hits 100 degrees, it will most likely be the warmest day of the year. Going a little towards the north, a weather station in Plano reported 100 degrees with a heat index of 104.
Heat Advisory - Heat Advisory is in effect for much of the coverage area until 8 PM Saturday due to heat index values of 103-107.
There is an upper high that is mainly in the middle of the plains, that expanded to cover much of Texas which will keep highs close to 100s with no precipitation. Some clouds are possible, but will not really make a big difference.
Not really changing tomorrow; we will continue to see highs at or just below 100 degrees with no precipitation with some clouds.
The Weekend - By Sunday, the upper ridge should weaken slightly here, and we might see more cloud coverage and maybe even some showers and storms, if model runs show consistency. Nonetheless, expect highs to continue to be at or above 100 degrees in most locations. If anything, the chance of any one spot getting wet is in the 10% category, but we will continue to see with other model runs.
Next Seven Days - Some of the hottest weather in the U.S. will be to the north of here, but I still project temperatures of 95-98 for most days of this week. Monday seems to be the only day with an isolated storm or two next week. But regardless, expect a hot week with little to no rainfall.
See the Texas Weather Outlook for more details.
Tropical Talk - A lot of dry air from Africa is covering most of the Atlantic Basin. As a result, the Atlantic is quiet today and will continue to be for the next five days.
Have a great rest of the day, and stay cool!
