Since yesterday the humidity has crept up into the “uncomfortable” range. There was a few morning showers across our northwest but we expect a few thunderstorms to develop this afternoon in the same area. Highs today in the upper 90’s with a HEAT ADVISORY starting at 1pm. A little breezy today for those out on the lakes:

Lots of outdoor activities planned so make sure to stay aware of how much direct sun you and the kids are getting, take breaks and drink plenty of non-alcoholic fluids. Those feel-like temperatures are getting above 105° next couple of days:

The best chance of rain we’ve had over the last week arrives later today and tonight. This is a glancing blow for most of us, most of this will fall north of the Red River. This afternoon we expect the storms to be northwest of the Metroplex but shift to our northern half overnight into early morning tomorrow:

Storms chances tomorrow peak in the afternoon and shift east in the evening. The best chance will be in the northeast corner. Most of us will have good weather for the evening firework shows:

The rain chances actually peak tonight. This is your best chance for some free, acidic water for your garden or lawn in the week ahead:

DFW has not registerd a triple-digit high since September of last year. Today in fact marks exactly 300 days since the last one at the official weather site for north Texas. Typically we suffer the first one by July 1st but this year it might hold off until after the 4th. Just after.
