Alright, ladies and gentlemen. We're about to cross over the first big hurdle. The first substantial cold front to knock down the brutal summer heat and humidity! Now that's not to say we can't warm back up after Monday, but it's going to be really tough to get back into triple-digit heat.
The temperature will climb into the upper 90s to around 102 degrees Monday afternoon. The heat index, however, will be be between 105 and 110 degrees, making for a dangerously hot and humid afternoon.
We've been through several similar days recently. We just need to get through one more before we finally see the temperature and humidity levels drop.
Two cold fronts will move across North Texas this week. The first front will arrive Tuesday. Scattered showers and storms will help to push the front into Central Texas before it stalls out. That means we will have two days -- Tuesday and Wednesday -- with decent chances for showers and storms.
Behind the first front, temperatures will drop into the upper 80s to lower 90s for a couple days. Just as temperatures start to climb late in the week, another cold front will come in to knock us back down to around 90 degrees in time for Labor Day weekend.
We're almost to the summer finish line. Just a little bit longer to go!
