Discussion...
hot weather will continue into the weekend...but the oppressive
humidity will abate somewhat over the next several days.
Nevertheless...heat indices will again rise to around 100 to 105
degrees at many locations within our forecast area...especially
the central and southern parts. The heat advisory remains in
effect until tomorrow evening.

A cold front is forecast to arrive late in the weekend...bringing
some modest relief from the heat. As the front continues southwest
into Texas...southerly flow will resume over the front around the
middle of next week. This will probably set up a situation similar
to what produced record cool maximum temperatures last week.
Models are fairly consistent in portraying a wet...cloudy day next
Wednesday...with high temperatures around 15 degrees f below
average.

A few showers/thunderstorms will be possible with the weekendfront
as it moves southwest across the region...but warm temperatures
aloft will limit coverage and intensity.
