There will be a potential for sprinkles or showers this morning, mainly near and south of I-20. The better chance for rain will be this afternoon across Central Texas. A few storms may become strong with mainly a downburst threat. Otherwise, it'll be very warm to hot across North and Central Texas.
Satellite shows smoke (milky, gray area) from forest fires in western Canada and the northwestern US being pulled south into Texas by an intense low pressure system in the Midwest. Skies may become more hazy Tuesday across North Texas due to this smoke.
The late Summer upper high strengthens once again for late in the week into this weekend, bringing hot, breezy, and dry conditions back to the region. Highs Thursday through Saturday will range from the middle 90s to around 102 degrees. Heat indices may reach 105 degrees across isolated areas east of I-35. These conditions may increase drought conditions again across parts of the area. In addition, gusty south winds 15-20 mph may result in elevated fire danger conditions, especially west of I-35.
