THE HEAT

A weak "cold" front has moved through North Texas, which will keep temperatures a few degrees cooler than Wednesday, and the humidity will be slightly lower as well.

Don't waste your time trying to find your winter coats, it will still be hot Thursday. High temperatures will be in the low to mid-90s, which is pretty normal for this point in July. Humidity will be slightly lower, but there will still be enough humidity to give most places heat index values in the upper 90s to low triple digits.

SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS

Don't expect a repeat of yesterday, but isolated showers and thunderstorms are possible this afternoon into this evening. Coverage will be much lower with most places staying dry Thursday.

TROPICAL UPDATE

Some time Thursday we will likely have a storm named Barry in the Gulf of Mexico. It will likely be a Tropical Depression. 

The exact path the storm will take is still uncertain, but it will move west then north over the next few days most likely making landfall along the central Louisiana coast as a category 1 hurricane sometime on Saturday.

For North Texas, the bulk of the storm will stay well east of our area, which means impacts to our region look very minimal. Far eastern areas of North Texas could see increased cloud cover and scattered showers late weekend into early next week, but most of North Texas looks to just stay hot and dry.
