Heat Advisory today and tomorrow. Please limit strenuous outdoor activity between noon and 6pm.

Some relief is coming Thursday morning. A weak (not that cool) front will cross the Red River Valley after midnight bringing a chance for some overnight non-severe storms. They may weaken before they arrive, but at least there's a chance.

One thing this wind shift will do is cool temperatures down a few degrees, but it will still feel like its 100 degrees through the weekend when you factor in the humidity.

But wait, there's more. By the end of the week. there will be something lurking the the northern Gulf Mexico. A blob of moisture? A tropical depression? Tropical Storm Barry? Where is it going? Will north and east Texas see any rain from this? Right now, I'm thinking we will see little if any impacts here in north Texas. More later.
