  • Southeast to see less heat and more storms, little if any relief in OK and TX

    July 24, 2016; 7:30 PM ET

    Much of the South gets a break from the miserable heat this week. However, any break back in Oklahoma and Texas will be short-lived. The East Pacific tropics will get less busy for a time this week. The Atlantic probably will stay quiet but things will get a little more interesting.

  • Heat to hang on a while in Texas, but will ease in the Southeast next week

    July 23, 2016; 7:00 PM ET

    The heat wave will go on in Oklahoma and parts of Texas for several more days but it will ease some in the Southeast next week. Florida, the Gulf Coast and Texas will see more typical summer heat and humidity. The East Pacific tropics remain very active but the Atlantic is still quiet for now. Maybe there will be signs of life in the Atlantic at the end of the month.

  • Hot this weekend, hot next week for most, too

    July 22, 2016; 12:30 AM ET

    For most of the South, there will be no real break from the intense heat for the next week. A few areas, such as Florida, the Gulf Coast and South Texas will see more typical summer heat. Also, a front will affect a part of the Southeast with thunderstorms and slightly cooler air next week.

  • High heat is here to stay for most

    July 20, 2016; 10:00 PM ET

    Intense heat will cover the South through this weekend. Some will see the heat ease early next week, but not many. The Atlantic tropics remain quiet, the East Pacific very busy.

  • Heat to build east, an oppressively hot weekend

    July 20, 2016; 12:30 AM ET

    The extreme heat now building over the middle of the nation will spread into more of the Southeast through this weekend. It looks as though the heat will ease early next week in some areas.

  • A hot week west, some east to see less heat

    July 17, 2016; 7:00 PM ET

    Extreme heat will be setting up for many areas east of the Mississippi this week with widespread triple digits. Meanwhile, many in the Southeast will see the heat ease this week, but it will stay some flavor of hot in the Deep South.

  • Fronts keep pushing into the Southeast, serious Plains heat next week

    July 15, 2016; 12:00 AM ET

    With fronts pushing into the Southeast, the heat can't get too out of hand there. Meanwhile, some intense heat continues back in Texas and Oklahoma and it's only going to get worse there next week. The extreme heat will nose into the Southeast early next week but get beaten back near the East Coast.

  • Another hot week, hotter west next week with less heat east

    July 11, 2016; 4:30 PM ET

    It looks as though there's no stopping the heat in most places west of the Mississippi the next several days. In fact, it will get even hotter later this week and especially next week. This week the Deep South stays hot while areas toward the Mason-Dixon Line get hotter. But, it looks as though another front moves in later this week with relief for some and next week many areas in the Southeast cool off.

  • Heat will build again in the South this week

    July 10, 2016; 7:00 PM ET

    Heat will rebuild in the Southeast this week as thunderstorms become less widespread. But, another front will move in later in the week to beat the heat down again. It will stay mostly hot and rain-free west of the Mississippi. The tropical Atlantic will stay mainly quiet while the East Pacific stays active.
