There is a heat wave right around the corner, the first one of the summer season:
I’m likely a little aggressive with the first triple-digit highs of the season (if he arrives on Wednesday we would have gone about 280 days since the last 100° last year). It might be too humid! It is somewhat of a moot point; that humidity will make it currently FEEL like its a 100 plus.
Before the typical hot and dry weather of summer sets in we are enjoying one more chance of much needed rain. A line of storms formed at the end of day in the Texas/OK panhandle. They should enter into north Texas in the early mornings. We could get these into the metro area just around daybreak. Later that afternoon storms will likely form in our eastern counties. The risk for severe weather is very small but they should have some lighting and gusty winds.
The storms will move east of the metro area as we get into the afternoon. Highs will be kept in check because of the clouds and rain-cooled air, especially east and northeast of Dallas:
After this we look to be high and dry for the balance of the month. The extended shows the story: lots of sunshine and south winds (which means high humidity) and no talk of rain. Area water reservoirs are low and will likely get lower.
