After dry weather since last Saturday, storm chances have returned to north Texas just in time for the weekend. Not that MUCH of a chance but at least higher chances than last work week and most of the work week ahead:

The humidity is high this morning and will stay high through the day. Highs today reach into the low 90’s, slightly cooler than the days of late but the humidity will make it actually FEEL a little hotter:


Storm chances peak in the daytime heating. These storms are not expected to be severe. You can monitor then with the CBS11 Weather App if you have outdoor plans. We’ll have storm chances both days:

We have a slight disturbance just to our west while moisture builds in from our southeast. These two factors will likely be enough to end our dry streak. The dewpoints will be high over the next couple of days with the Gulf opening up. It’s a reminder that geographically speaking north Texas sits on the northern edge of the Texas coastal plain. In the winter it seems we are more “southern edge of central plain”.

The storm chances continue into Monday before the summertime ridge builds right back in. This is how the summer ridge looks today:

It flattens a bit by mid-week and then re-builds slightly west but is closer to full-summer strength:

The hottest weather of the season is expected next week as we count down to the Summer Solstice (next Sunday)
