    Last "streak" of the summer? Let's hope so! It's a long one. Other than some early AM low clouds (esp S/E) today ends up mostly sunny...with a hot, humid breeze. Think we will hit 100...and the heat index will end up near 104. That's getting up there. This could end up as a FIVE day streak with a bias toward 101's by Sun-Tue. By mid week, a cold front will approach with a few storms possible and temps dropping back to the "norm" in the mid 90s.

    Enjoy the "cool" forecast...it's only UP from here! Actually pleasant this AM! Sunny, warm...light winds today and Thu. Mid 90s. By Friday we heat back into the upper 90s, with even 100 possible western areas. The weekend is TEXAS TOASTY again. Low 100s all the way into next week. Now we do have low storm chances Sun-Mon-Tue esp. areas north of I-20 but like last week, if you get one, consider yourself lucky.
