For many area school-age children across north Texas this is the last weekend of summer. The heat of summer continues on Sunday. We hit 99° for a high today. We expect a triple-digit high Sunday and Monday. We also expect a break in the heat by the end of the work week:

Here is your Sunday forecast by the hour. Lots of sun with a south wind. Humidity will be about the same as today: not TOO high but by all measurement a hot, sweltering summer day in store for us:


High pressure continues to sit over us over the next couple of days. It’ll move into the Tennessee Valley by Tuesday and open up a southeast flow of moisture from the Gulf. Without the high pressure right overhead this translates into afternoon storms. Tuesday most of the activity will be south and southeast of the Metroplex. By Wednesday and Thursday brief heavy rains will isolated over the metro area:

A cold front joins the fray by late Thursday or Friday. This could produce another generous rain event by the end of the week. Last weekend we had the biggest rain of the year; another good soaking would almost too good to be true. Keep in mind August is typically our DRIEST month of the year. Right now its the wettest one!

We are keeping an eye to the tropics, I’m thinking that the Tropical Depression over the Bahamas becomes the third-named storms of the Atlantic Hurricane Season. This the slowest start to the hurricane season since 2000 but T. S. Christabol could threat the U.S. by Labor Day weekend.


Here is your 7-Day forecast. Best chance for rain falls on Friday. We should have dry and reasonably cool air (as in NOT 100’s)  in place by next weekend for Labor Day.
