The frontal boundary and surface low that produced the big rain is slowly moving east. We are keeping rain in the forecast for the metroplex for today but only a 30% chance. Mostly it’ll be low clouds and light rain but a few storms are possible with the daytime heating:

The clouds and north winds will keep temperatures down as a cold front moves through this morning.  We are expecting yet another day in the 80’s:


Notice how little it moves east by tomorrow morning. We’ll continue to see clouds and brisk north winds with the low so close to us. This means a very cool start to August. It’ll dry out for the weekend; the sunshine will get us in the low 90’s. Very reasonable for the time of year.
