Triple digits are in sight later this week.
Tonight, temperatures will be in the mid to upper 70s across the Metroplex. With winds continuing out of the south, conditions will continue to be warm and muggy.
With the skies being mostly clear tonight, there will be a chance to see the International Space Station. Around 9:11 tonight, for approximately 4 minutes, the ISS will be moving from the NNW to the SE. The International Space Station will look like a fast-moving star racing across the sky. Unlike shooting stars and meteorites, there will be no “trail” behind the Space Station.
After a mostly clear night, tomorrow we will have another chance to reach 100°. In North Texas temperatures will range from 107° in Wichita Falls to 96° in Tyler. Dallas and Fort Worth will be around 99 to 100 degrees. The winds will be breezy out of the south allowing for the humidity to stay relatively high.
“Cooler” Temps Next Week
Over the weekend, the High Pressure System, that has been dominating our Summer weather, will begin to move off to our west causing a shift in upper-level winds. This shift will allow a weak cold front to come into the area at the end of the weekend.
With the cooler air moving in, there is a chance of isolated storms on Sunday associated with a “cold front”. These storms will be extremely isolated and will not stick around long.
As next week comes into view, we will not be as warm as we have been this week. Temperatures will be in the low to mid 90s, and we will see a break in the humidity.
Thursday into the weekend, temperatures will be pushing into the 100° range. We have the possibility to get above 100 Thursday through Saturday.
For Sunday the “cold front” and chance of rain will bring temperatures down just a bit and keep temperatures down through the beginning of next week.
