Hot Monday, Then Slowly Getting Better
Back to school tomorrow and it’ll be blazing hot. Take care if in an after-school activity outside!
A little bit of relief is on the way starting on Tuesday. Ever since Thursday we’ve had no rain chances and a daily high (at DFW) of either 99° or 100°. Its been consistently hot and dry because of a high pressure system sitting off just to our east. On its southern edge it is gathering moisture off the Gulf and pushing it west:
As the high pressure weakens and shifts to the northeast it opens the door for a weak disturbance over the Gulf to move into the Texas coast. This creates slight afternoon storm chances for Tuesday to Thursday:
It should also increase the cloud cover and bring an easterly surface wind, two reasons for slightly cooler temperatures. The best rain chances will come Friday and Saturday as a front stalls out to our west and northwest. Right now the best storms chances are on Saturday:
Here is your extended forecast. Not a whole lot cooler but at least not more 100’s:
