Another summer day with the same forecast as the last. These are the days that the forecasts run together and we see little day to day change. Sunny skies and overhead high pressure will once again result in a quick warmup. Temperatures by lunchtime will be in the lower 90s. Temperatures will top out in the mid to upper 90s across all of Texas. Those that don’t will climb into the lower 100s. The ‘how it will feel’ temperature will be around 105 degrees across Northeast and East Texas this afternoon with higher humidity values. Isolated thunderstorms will be possible this afternoon in the Texas Panhandle. Gusty winds will be a decent bet near the stronger storms.
Temperatures tonight will drop into the upper 60s to lower 70s across the Texas Panhandle, West Texas, the Permian Basin, and Hill Country. Mid to upper 70s will be noted elsewhere with heat index values in the lower 80s. Again nothing unusual for July. Temperatures will increase this weekend with several locations in Texas likely to top 100 degrees. Chances for rain remain low for the next several days.
