I am @AccuFrank on Twitter, which is the most reliable way to get alerted when I post new stuff. There's also this Facebook fan page thingie, which is not particularly reliable for that but it's good for posting little things where 140 characters won't do them justice.
After a brief respite for parts of Texas and Oklahoma, the heat will rebuild later this week into this weekend. Fronts pushing into the Southeast will give relief for some, but only so far south. The tropical Atlantic remains quiet, the East Pacific busy.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
