Today will be the hottest day of the year so far for DFW, with everyone reaching 100 or above. However, a cool down is on the way as we enter the weekend, thanks to a late July Cold Front. Thanks to the cold front, by the time we reach Monday our high temperatures may not get out of the 80s!
The front could also bring a chance of rain Sunday, but amounts should be relatively low. Unfortunately, that’s bad news for our lake and reservoirs, as they are already below capacity.
Due to these deficits, the Tarrant Regional Water District, which is plotted in green on the map, has issued stage 1 water restrictions. Stage 1 limits outdoor watering to once every 2 weeks. Check with your municipal governments for specific guidelines.
Also, the North Texas Municipal Water District, which serves parts of Collin, Denton, Dallas, Rockwall, Hunt, and Kaufman counties has issued Stage 3 Restrictions. Stage 3 limits landscape watering to once every two weeks and to eliminate watering from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Check with your municipal governments for specific guidelines.
As mentioned above, a cool front will give us a shot of “cool” air into next week. I will stress that cool is a relative term, because highs will still be in the upper 90s to some 100s tomorrow across most of North Texas.
Cooler air starts to filter into the area as we head into Sunday, with highs in the lower 90s.
We cool down even more as we head into the work week, with highs in the upper 80s on Monday, before warming back up into the 90s, with a slight chance of storms for Independence Day.
