A weak ridge in place keeps North Texas mainly rain-free, but helps crank the heat with another triple digit day for some. By Tuesday night, another unsettled weather pattern sets up for the rest of the week. This means more showers and storms, and cooler temperatures.
Today, partly sunny skies and mid to upper 90s are the norm. The highest moisture will be east of I-35, this is where a late-day shower will be possible. Heat index values will climb to 105 degrees.
We start the work and school week, hot and quiet. Partly to mostly sunny skies should be great for Eclipse viewing, with the peak just after 1 pm for North Texas.
Tuesday night, the next cold front heads toward the region. Scattered showers and storms will move south from Oklahoma and impact the area into Wednesday. Several disturbances thereafter will keep rain chances in the forecast through the end of the week. More cloud cover and moisture should hold high temperatures in the 80s and low 90s, which is below normal for this time of year.
