Most of the rain and storm activity today has been confined once again along what’s left of the stalled frontal boundary draped from southeast Texas up across southwest/west Texas.  Ongoing activity will begin to die out over the next several hours.  Could see some redevelopment across western OK into northwest Texas by morning, but any rain that falls will be minimal at best.  Here’s a look at simulated radar overnight and into tomorrow morning.

Temps north of the front will be a degree or two cooler tonight, but still warm.  The coolest spots will once again be across the panhandle and the mountain regions of western Texas which will see lows down in the 60s tonight.  The urban areas will likely dip just below 80 degrees…but not by much.

Highs tomorrow….only a couple of degrees lower behind the front, but anything under the 100 degree readings we’ve had lately will be cause for a small celebration.  In reviewing the long-range outlooks this evening, it appears we’ll stay mostly at or just above seasonal temperatures for the next 10 to 15 days at least.  The one bright spot in our future will be the chance for a pattern change by next week which may bring rain back into the forecast across additional parts of the state including central, eastern and northern Texas.  Not looking like much at this point, but we’ll take whatever we can get!  More on what to expect next week and further on the August horizon in our weekend blogs!
