I am @AccuFrank on Twitter, which is the most reliable way to get alerted when I post new stuff. There's also the Facebook fan page. New posts here are not ready until I say they are ready via Twitter/Facebook.
The heat goes on in Texas while other areas see a break at times over the next week. Florida is getting a nice soaking that is generally wanted and needed.
West of the Mississippi the heat gets worse this weekend while farther east it's not too bad. Get ready for soaking rains in parts of Florida. Heat will expand east again soon.
The heat has backed off a little back in Texas but it comes back even worse the rest of the workweek into the weekend. In the Southeast, the heat is easing and the break will continue for a while.
The heat won't ease any time soon in Texas but the Southeast will be catching a break. The tropics remain mostly quiet.
Little change from yesterday, an upper ridge has an iron grip on the weather in Texas while cooler air is headed to the Southeast along with some storms. The tropics mostly remain quiet for now.
Most places west of the Mississippi River will simmer like a pot of chili this week, but the heat will ease again over much of the Southeast. The tropical Atlantic remains quiet, but there's some action in the East Pacific.
