As the eastern upper trough lifts out this week, heat will build across the South. We're still a week or so away from having any tropical troubles to be concerned about.
Hotter weather is coming next week as the upper trough over the eastern states retreats. However, the heat doesn't look as severe nor long-lasting in the Southeast this time.
The storm track will stay stuck between I-40 and the Mason-Dixon Line for a while, leading to a stormy pattern with severe storm and flood concerns. Typical summer heat and humidity elsewhere!
A front will spend most of the next week stalled across the area between I-40 and the Mason Dixon Line, so that area will stay unsettled. Farther south, hotter times are ahead, but no extreme heat.
The tropics on our side of the world are very quiet right now, here are some of the reasons why.
The heat is done for a long while. Regular fronts moving through parts of the south will cause stormy spells with some areas more favored than others.
Today will be the last day of extreme heat in the Southeast as cooler air is headed south, the front leading it causing drama along the way. That front will lead to more soakings in parts of Texas.
Intense heat will continue in the Southeast the rest of the workweek with typical heat back in Texas and Oklahoma. Cooler air will arrive this weekend and there will be some drama during the transition to cooler.
The rest of the workweek looks hot in the Southeast and even in much of the area west of the Mississippi, too. But a coming change in the weather pattern will bring relief!
The Southeast will remain hot until next weekend, while the heat gradually builds west of the Mississippi. It looks as though cooler air may move in next weekend.
